[ale] morning RAID problems.

Yes I have mdadm installed.


raiddev /dev/md1
	raid-level	1
	nr-raid-disks	2
	nr-spare-disks	0
	chunk-size	4
	persistent-superblock	1
	device	/dev/hde1
	raid-disk	0
	device	/dev/hdf1
	raid-disk	1

Should I rename /etc/raidtab and see if mdadm will work by itself?

cat your /etc/raidtab.  Also, I'd change both hde1 and hdf1 to type "fd"
which is raid autodetect.  Do you have "mdadm" installed?  It's the
sucessor to raidtools and is MUCH better.
