| reason for considering not using raid are due to the almost 2 hour

In fact, the raid startup script launches the parity rebuild
to be run backgrounded. However, I noticed that due to disk
thrashing, the reboot takes ages -- so I just put a "sleep 200"
before the rebuild starts. This is enough time to make the
machine boot and reach a relative quiet state, so rebuilding
parity runs unnoticed in the background.
