1. Introduction

1.1 Acknowledgements

The essence of the information I've put together here was originally provided by Harald Nordgård-Hansen < > and posted to the raid mail list in a lilo.conf file with commentary by Martin Bene < >. Many thanks for your contribution. I've tried to put this information and the helpful work of many others who contribute to the raid mail list and linux raid project into a COOKBOOK form, including many examples from real systems so that bootable root raid is easy to set up and understand. One section is devoted to the conversion of a standard single drive system to RAID. The key to the conversion, in my humble opinion, is the understanding of bootable root raid.

1.2 Bugs

Yes, I'm sure there are some. If you'd be good enough to report them, I will correct the document. ;-)
