Thanks again for the advice, it appears that dmraid does indeed support
my NVRAID/FakeRAID, and I've managed to activate but not mount the NTFS
partition on the array. I'll conquer that problem in time. What's
troubling me at the moment, is that the two individual drives of the
array are being mounted "automagically" by Fedora; they aren't listed in
the fstab file at all. A little research is leading me to believe that
perhaps the initial installation of Fedora or perhaps an update
performed a mkinitrd with those partitions mounted, so they're mounted
whenever I boot. I'll have to find a solution to that, and get the raid
array entry in /dev/mapper/ mounted via fstab...
Wish me luck... ;)
