I've just commited a change to boot1.c that (should) make it possible
to boot straight from the raid set (ie without the 'boot' partition).
Use fdisk to put separate mbr partitions on the 'boot' and 'raid'
filesystems, and you can boot either with the bootselect code.

(You'll need to update src/sys/dev/raidframe/raidframevar.h as well,
I had to exclude chunks of it when _STANDALONE is defined.)
