Re: Problems installing BRUB with RAID5

I have a pc with 3x40GB IDE drives.
I have 2 RAID 5 devices setup-
/dev/md0 = 3 x 38GB as /

Debian base installs OK but when I get to the Grub installation I get a
"Fatal Error" message.
I am telling Grub to install on /dev/md0 but it won't install.
Any tips would be appreciated.
AFAIK, grub can only be set up on a raid0 or a raid1 device. So far, I
can not document this, but I seem to recall that fact. As others said,
you need to install grub on REAL devices. You can see www.damtek.com
for a (I hope rather thorough) walk through on how to set up grub on a raid.
