If your referring to debian-installer, the replacement for boot-floppies, I
don't think anything has been done in that area. If you are referring to
boot-floppies, I don't know.

Great. Right now debian-installer can generate boot disks and interact in a
limited way with the user, there is much to do. The only thing somewhat related
to software raid is the partkit module in debian-installer cvs. It is an
incomplete module. I envision it being able to handle all our partitioning
needs, I'm guessing that software raid would fall into that, somewhere?
