Is there anyone having experience? [Disclaimer: I've never tried this, nor thought about it before, but here goes...] I'm sure it's possible, but I doubt that any of the debian boot disks support this. You might have to make your own, it's not too hard. IIRC, you just need to compile up a kernel image with whatever options/patches/whatever that you need, then copy the bzImage to a FAT-formatted floppy. Then, you need to use the syslinux command to make the disk bootable. If you can get the machine to boot using this disk, then you should be able to install debian using it. Actually, it might be more complicated than that...doesn't software RAID require some userland intervention? Hmmm...you might be better off attaching another hard drive to the system, then using debootstrap to setup the debian system... -rob -- I did not vote for the Australian government.
