10 In theory many permutations are possible, even if not reasonable. But I
11 have found that raid can automount with type fd on x86 partition type.
12 On most of the other arch passing md=0,/dev/hda1,/dev/hdb1 to the kernel
13 will autostart your raid. Once that is done lvm will be happy on your
14 raid partition.
16 I do like the idea of booting on some raid partitions with most
17 journaled FS it needs to be rw.
19 I am watching lvm as it might become one of the best overall solution
20 including raid in a same wrapper.
