My initial experiments on RAID worked well with Linux kernel RAID, but 
not with proprietory RAID boards. I was setting up RAID on smbserver, 
which I like.

BUT, though it's a doddle to set up RAID on a linux system, I didn't 
crack what to do when one of the disk fails - simulated by turning off 
the power to one disk. Then what do you do? It doesn't seem to be 
straightforward. Or is it James?
