I did write it, and appreciate constructive criticism and the help from 
Max and Russ on the disclaimers.  I added some additional warnings and 
explanation about the device files, but left /dev/sda and /dev/sdb in 
place as changing to /dev/sdX|Y looked very awkward to me.

I'm sorry if someone made a mess of a system following the procedure, 
but it is not possible to prevent people from shooting themselves in the 
foot if they fail to understand very basic commands whose effect is 
self-evident to the vast majority of paid admins or other knowledgeable 
Linux users.
