no problem, just some time left to try out different options ;)
and i was just about to try that way, any pointers about the install you
are willing to share?
should be something as follows i figured, can you include /boot this way?
sfdisk -d /dev/hda | sfdisk /dev/hdb etc......
mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sd[ab]1
mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sd[cd]1
mdadm --create /dev/md2 --level=0 --raid-devices=2 /dev/md
