hi ya manuel..
sounds like you want a "root-boot mirror"...not just mirroring..
which is trickier...
- i say just run lilo on the mirrored disk...
each time you change the booting thingies
( kernels, lilo, etc )
- than it should boot if you do get to hdb instead of hda
- why make it complicated ???
if / or the / partition dies...you've got bigger problems
than just mirroring anyway.....mirroring wont hide the source/cause
of the problems...
