I used two disks. Each disk as a seperate component.
Fwiw, I'm considering the possibility that my filesystem problems of
this morning might be power-supply related. I've never seen random
data corruption on NetBSD before and I see no reason why it should
start all of a sudden.
I don't honestly think that the raid partition was at fault here. My
reason for considering not using raid are due to the almost 2 hour
fsck/parity rebuild that happened when I rebooted after the panic this
morning. That's not something I want to go through in the event that
my machine crashes. I want it up sooner. The system in question would
probably do just fine with a manual nightly mirror/rsync to protect
me in the event of failure.
