I've successfully followed the excellent instructions at
http://www.netbsd.org/guide/en/chap-rf.html to get a system going with
RAID-1 as the root filesystem.
It so happens, that this works so well you can even have the kernel be on
the raid device! I can't seem to get this working with RAID-5 though, but
can't determine if this is a limitation of bootxx_ffsv1 , or if it's
something silly I'm doing.
Is there a way to boot and load a kernel off of a RAID-5 Raidframe, or do I
need to use a separate disk/partition/whatever to load the kernel?
