I have a XCP 0.5RC1 machine that I setup using software RAID-1.  I'm
using the same basic instructions that are used for XenServer 5.5.
Mainly install the system and then create the md devices afterwards.

It works fine, but it brings up a question.  How do you upgrade XCP
under this scenario?

Booting off the XCP 0.5RC2 CD, it doesn't give me an option to
upgrade.  I'm assuming because of the software RAID-1.

I tried being creative and just untaring the new .tar.bz2 files over /
and re-running mkinitrd by hand.  I thought it was going to work until
I rebooted and it complained it couldn't find the device-mapper.

So what is the recommend way?  Completely remove the RAID-1, upgrade,
and the set it back up?
