yup.. i know the feeling .... so my standard answer is its 10x -100x
faster ( cheaper for the customer too ) to just buy 2 new disks
and than no data is lost either :-)
if they rather pay for day or dayz or weeks instead of buy 2 new
disks at $60ea .. its their $$$ to convert from non-raid to raid..
and yeah... initrd isnt too bad.. once you get the hang of it and what
its for ... and what to do to modify it .. just not enough good docs on
"initrd" is all
