if one can't boot off of either disk, its NOT raid ... and cannot claim
to be raid ...  one must be able to boot even if a disk is dead and also
keep running on 1-leg even if the other disk has long since died

ez enuff to fix ...

	- the installer needs to make sure the disk is partitioned as "FD"
	- the installer needs to have the right /etc/lilo.conf or

	- assigning the various partitions to each /dev/mdxx should
	be be done as a sanity check  and that grub/lilo installed

c ya
