OK, not like anyone's probably interested in this, but I worked hard the
last few weeks and need somewhere to brag a bit about the result! =8^)
FWIW, the raid system is 100% up and running, including switching from
LILO to GRUB and learning a /ton/ about raid/lvm/grub all three! I'm only
using lvm on my non-root raid6 partition, and as explained, the kernel
handles the raid on its own, so no need for an initrd/initramfs! Yeah!
