Re: [Xen-users] Raidproblem booting dom0

my understanding is that you want to hide the complexities from domU
systems... so if you want the domU to have a raid1 filesystem, you export
the raid1 device to the domU but call it /dev/sda1 or something like
that... so the domU just sees a block device, it doesn't need to know that
it is actually a raid1 mirror.

Obviously, you can go the other way, and let it see both partitions and do
the mirroring itself, but it is _much_ simpler to just show the domU a
simple block device.
