I have some suggested tweaks and changes to
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Install_On_Partitionable_RAID1

1. The user should be instructed to start rescue mode with networking in 
order to be able to retrieve the patch for mkinitrd.

2. The command to create /etc/mdadm.conf will result in an extra line 
"spares=1" while the array is still syncing.  Adding " | head -1 " to 
the command to create it fixes the problem.

3. Some additional discussion on how to handle multiple partitions 
should be added.  There is an implicit assumption that only "/" is used.

4. It is not necessary to change "LABEL=..." to "/dev/md_d0..." in 
/etc/fstab and /boot/grub/grub.conf.

5. There is no indication of the page author - Lev Shamardin - nor 
statement about page maintenance preferences.

If the page author, Lev Shamardin, does not object I would be glad to 
make the changes, or to further discuss them.
