:) And the other thing you really really really want to do is:
raidctl -A yes raid0
so that you never again have to do a -C or -c for this RAID set :)

Do the above 'raidctl -A yes raid0', and then do a shutdown. Pop the
new wd1 back in. Bring the system back up. raid0 will be automatically
configured, and will look something like:
# raidctl -s raid0
/dev/wd1a status is: failed. Skipping label.
Component label for /dev/wd2a:
Row: 0, Column: 1, Num Rows: 1, Num Columns: 2
Version: 2, Serial Number: 35710, Mod Counter: 277
Clean: No, Status: 0
sectPerSU: 128, SUsPerPU: 1, SUsPerRU: 1
Queue size: 100, blocksize: 512, numBlocks: 490234624
RAID Level: 1
Root partition: No
Last configured as: raid0
Parity status: DIRTY
Reconstruction is 100% complete.
Parity Re-write is 100% complete.
Copyback is 100% complete.
(Mod Counter might be different than above :) )
At that point you can do:
raidctl -a /dev/wd1a raid0
to hot-add wd1a to the set, and then:
raidctl -F component0 raid0
to rebuild onto wd1a. You can either keep running like this, or, if
you'd like, reboot. After reboot, wd1a will 'magically' appear in
its correct spot in the set. (Again: you must do the 'raidctl -A'
above for all of this to work properly..)
