RAIDers of the Nuked Fridge

After following these directions, my new Ubuntu 8.04 system with 1.5 TB RAID 5 is operational! Bonus: GRUB installed and ran without incident, suggesting that some effort had been put into fixing the mentioned bugs even before the Intrepid release. Moreover, I'm impressed to see that 1680x1050 resolution works out of the box. Ubuntu has come a long way since I started using it. Windows users take note: if you wrote off this increasingly popular distro, you owe it to yourself to give it another shot.

I'll post the partitioning and installation pics to my Computers album after work. Next up: development utilities, minor config tweaks, and a bit of A/V "testing" with some Cowboy Bebop.
