Re: RAIDframe component replacement

        Hello.  If the new disk has the same bus and target numbers, it will
reset as sd0 and you  won't see a new disk, but a restored existing disk.
Of course, at this point, you'll have to re-partition and/or disklabel it,
before you do your raidctl -R /dev/sd0a raid0, but once you  do those
steps, and the raid rebuild is complete, it will be as if you never
replaced the disk at all.
