Re: Installing from software RAID0?

I guess you mean space limitations in the first stage installer (since
the second stage does know RAID and can scan them for existing
installations)?

It has been mentioned as a possiblity that floppy boot may go away
because the kernel won't fit (due to ACPI).  With a CD boot, the first
stage could be larger (and presumably smarter); any chance of support
for more complex hard drive installs then?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
