I was being a bit OTT, but I quite liked the alternate CDs and used it in
preference to the normal one.

Same issue as Ubuntu.  No RAID support in the installer.  I have read
around a fair bit today on resolving that (installing mdadm etc), but using
the 12.04 alternate is in fact a much simpler solution.
Also I prefer Ubuntu to some of the ways Mint does things, so that's why I
intend to drop Cinnamon on top once I'm happy Ubuntu is working.

Yer OK there.  There's cookie baking going on today as well and I'm already
stuffed from all the quality control.
