It's can be quite involved, depending on whether or not your
distribution has integrated support for multipath boot or not. RHEL and
Fedora support this via the standard mkinitrd script, but only if you
set the multipathing up at install time (start installer with "linux
For other distros, ymmv, but you'll need to get the multipath commands
included in the initramfs image and add script to activate all the maps
that are needed for the root file system.
