I have a RAID1 running on a pair of external FW drives. I've found that
Linux is picky about the chipset on the external drives, however, and have
had some cases that work under MacOS X not work at all under Linux. I also
ran into a situation in which two identical cases could not be
distinguished, though either one worked individually.
