debian install on software raid
Does Debian have or plan to provide a method to install directly onto a
RAID device? I know it's possible to do a regular install and then "fix
it up" by playing around with the raidtab "failed-disk" directive, so
that your disk partitions get mirrored, and then update your lilo.conf
to use the /dev/mdX devices (so all your partitions, including / and /boot
are mirrored). However, this process is time-consuming and error-prone.
The Software-RAID HOWTO says that only Redhat had some kind of method
for installing directly onto raid, but that HOWTO is dated Jan 2000, so
perhaps things have changed?
