The apr 1 info, may be the key parameter. I remember reading snippets
in several locations.... but nothing to recall now. I did not
really focus on the issue at the time, so it is completely
possible it was but a lark, I did not discern.....

Still, an interesting idea, some would think. I have taken
the path of setting up raid under Ubuntu, as suggested to me
by a few old gentoers. While visiting the Ubuntu offerings,
it surprises me to see so many (gentoo) familiar folks bouncing
around and using Ubuntu, for a wide variety of purposes.
Quite a lively and social bunch over there at Ubuntu, many
old friends.....

Yes you are correct. Also, I did find the Ubuntu installation media
(alternate.iso) for explicitly setting up RAID, as part of the
native Ubuntu installation docs and media.

Furthermore, Ubuntu on arm boards; documents intended for the rank and 
file users; very cool indeed.

I'm still looking for equivalents in Gentoo; maybe after grub-2
is stable on gentoo, we can get a singular document and matching 
installation media for installing RAID from scratch.....

Also note,native ARM support for netbooks, laptop and lite-workstations
is coming to many linux distros. I just hope Gentoo leads
rather than follows in that regard. Surely the talent
is in the dev_pool to make it work, it's the documentation
that is the real challenge, imho.
