This works.  It recognised my existing raid0 mirror straightaway, and 
so I inserted a blank drive, booted to a shell, ran pdisk, disklabel, 
then used raidctl to create a mirror with one component marked 'absent' 
called raid1, used newfs, created a stub etc/fstab and went back into 

This time both raid0 and raid1 (as well as wd0 and wd1) were visible 
and I successfully installed onto raid1 from a set of .tgz files on 
raid0.  raidctl correctly reported the status of raid0 and raid1 (the 
missing drive, parity status, etc.)
