Thanks a lot for all theses scripts, but what can I do when
"deseperate", i've made an install of FC4, on a SATA Raid
Array (Bios Mode) and dmraid saw only /dev/mapper/xxxxxxxxx (i
don't remember the exact name), to boot on the complete Raid
Array (I love mirroring for my precious files)?

Best Regards
