  If that's the case, the installer team needs to print a much bigger
warning.  As of a month or two ago, they just say you can't use Grub for
boot-on-raid, but that Lilo works (that's how I got my system set up).

  As an irrelevant aside, I actually tried to set up a separate /boot with
grub and/or lilo, but neither seemed to be able to handle that configuration
at all (I don't remember why at the moment; I think it smelled like some weird
Epia idiosyncracy).
