We don't support linear RAID right now...

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-06-15 22:34:56 UTC
We don't crash anymore with unsupported RAID devices.  They get
ignored and won't get used (since we can't use them during the install
process), but this seems preferable to flaming death :)

That's a lot better.  The big raid partition is just movie data, not 
important for install.  Thanks much!
