ROTFL -- that's geek comedy at its finest...
We found that the 'data protection' features of software raid1/raid5 worked,
but typically when a drive failed, the linux kernel was unable to provide
useful service until it was rebooted and/or the failed drive removed. This
was in the 2.4 days; things may be different now.
We have since moved to 3ware hardware raid with better success in terms of
continuing to provide service through a drive failure event.
