I don't think I'll be able to help you much, but I can give you a few
pointers on where you can get more help. I had raised a similar question
in September, 2000, and so if you were to go to
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/ (which is where all the netbsd mailing lists
are archived), and go to the netbsd-users list for that month, you might
just find some info.
Infact, I went thru those mail myself just now, and have fished a link I
found to a tut posted by somebody (Mike Pelley) --
http://worldmap.net/raid.html. It might help.
[Basically, I never got abt to using RAID (coz I had 2-3 OSes on the same
machine, and that was a problem) and so would not be able to help much.]
Hope this helps.
