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.
