Thank you for giving me a new hope!!. (As star wars :)
). But FedoraCore != Debian != Redhat, isn't it?.
Anyway... does anybody know a howto to this (even in
fedora)?. I mean, something like "ataraid for dummies"
or so (or better: for very very dummies XD ). The
problem I have is that my array is working as an
/dev/ataraid/ device (I also boot from there). Could
dmraid broke my partitions, data or so?. 

Thank you for your fast answer!.

Oh!, and thank you everybody for working on this.
Nowadays I'm learning how to program the kernel, and
perhaps, someday, I'll be able to do something useful
for the world :).
