    Yes, it is. I've had such a configuration on this
    machine some weeks ago.

    Did you correctly set up the md? Did you make
    proper use of the raidtools? How does your raidtab, that you
    used to create the array, look like?

    Are you able to mount the md from a running system (not as / root)?
