I don't suppose you managed to get it to either: a) Create software RAID devices without hanging, or b) Just mount an existing software RAID device without attempting to recreate it? I can't do either, and i'm sure Debian would win a die-hard convert in me if i could just get the !@#$ thing installed. SATA seems to be the sticking point on my system, but i would have thought installing to an existing md would work, since installing to an existing non-RAID partition works. -- Paul <http://paulgear.webhop.net> -- Did you know?
