if a raid0 has a stripe size of 32k, then every other 32k is written on 
one drive, and every other 32k is written on the next drive.

if you lose one drive, then every other 32k of your file system is wiped 
out, gone, kaput.      its like taking a 12-gauge shotgun to your data 
and directory information.
