you have your raid mis-configured if
	- if you cannot do hands off reboot when any of the disk dies 

you have your system properly configured if
	- the system should still work flawlessly even if a disk died
	  and keeps working till the 2nd disk dies, than you lost
	( it should be able to work w/o kb, w/o monitor )

- your gamble is that you know exactly when your 1st disk
  died in the array and have enough time to replace it with
  a new disk ... no touching of cables .. no opening the box ..
  no keyboard touching other than typing "reboot"
