Hi Brian,

I ran (a few months later .18 and now .27) with RAID-0, RAID-1
and a big RAID-5 volume (all across 3 disks, RAID-1 for /boot, RAID-0
for temporary directories, Swap etc, RAID-5 for data) on three 1 TB SATA
drives 24/7 without any problems.
The only thing I encountered were problems with XFS; the domU crashed
while I was using XFS on a RAID-0 (!) volume. All other filesystems had
no problems so far, I think it is XFS-related and the XFS code has
changed a lot around that time... (BTW, I did not test it again after
