I need help with this. I'm trying to create a software RAID1. I followed
the instructions in man page

I did the above exactly as stated, except when I reboot ar0 just disappears.
What went wrong? Or, please point out what I missed. :confused:
I've tried setting the SATA type in BIOS to either "Native IDE" or "AHCI"
modes. If I set it to RAID mode, the installation says "no disks found".
When I boot up, either from the CD or from ad4, I see both disks, ad4 & ad6.
When I do the "atacontrol create RAID1 ad4 ad6" command and then "atacontrol
status ar0", it reports that ar0 is READY, but when I reboot, it's gone.
