yeah, I'd read that somewhere.

So I ahve it working.  I have a 512M RAID1 layed across all 4 disks
(though looks like mdadm only took the first 3 of them but I don't
care).  Then 2G swap part on each of the 4 disks.  Then the rest of
the 1T goes to a RAID10

It is running and working great.  The only thing I am having trouble
with is grub.   It works mind you.  But one of the articles I'd read
said basically when doing the RAID1 approach for /boot, to make sure
the boot loader is installed on all of the disks in the RAID1.  And
damned if I know how to do that.  Been reading man pages and checking
google and still nothing.
