Hello again: Yes, it has been a while. I was forced to set this project aside and just last night I had time to revisit it again. Well, you all know how it is... Ok, here is what I have in my fstab now: ############################################################### /dev/sda1 /boot ext2 noatime 0 2 /dev/sdb1 /boot2 ext2 noatime 0 2 /dev/sdc1 /boot3 ext2 noatime 0 2 /dev/md0 / ext3 noatime 0 1 /dev/sda4 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sdb4 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sdc4 none swap sw 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0 ############################################################### Now, the machine attempts to boot but I get the following: ############################################################### md: linear personality registered as nr 1 md: raid0 personality registered as nr 2 md: raid1 personality registered as nr 3 md: raid5 personality registered as nr 4 raid5: measuring checksumming speed VIS : 162.400 MB/sec raid5: using function: VIS (162.400 MB/sec) md: multipath personality registered as nr 7 md: Autodetecting RAID arrays.
