Nice job Phil :)
/remembering my disclaimer/ I'm not a raid/grub expert...
Presumably Section two is required because grub is installed to the mbr
of /dev/sda so /dev/sdb isn't bootable in the event /dev/sda should fail?
Would using grub be simpler rather than directly editing
/boot/grub/device.map ? Something like...
Following on from Section 1, reboot...
Stop at the grub menu and enter the "c" option, which gives you the grub
grub> device (hd0) /dev/sda
grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> device (hd1) /dev/sdb
grub> root (hd1,0)
grub> setup (hd1)
and test both disks are bootable. Achieves the same thing I guess.
