Can you please explain step 4 more carefully?  After you create two partitions
by clicking "New" and selecting the "software RAID" filesystem type, you then
click on the "RAID" button.  On this screen, are you then selecting "Create a
software RAID partition", "Create a RAID device", or "Clone a drive to create a
RAID device"?
Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2007-10-11 08:55:31 EDT
I choosed "Create a RAID device". 
I wanted to documented by series of screenshot, but I can not reproduce it
anymore. Therefore I'm closing it as NOTABUG.
