Thanks for the RPM's, specially the first (I'm using x86). >The CCISS differs from the usual disk controllers, so you may like >to partition, format and mount the will-be-root filesystem manually. >That means, before running `settle` you should run `fdisk >/dev/cciss/c0d0`, `mke2fs -j /dev/cciss/c0d0p1` and `mount /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 /owl` >(and other filesystems as well, most likely "/owl/var" and "/owl/home"). I've just read from (*1) that "Owl's installer program - settle - is not able to create software RAID devices yet". Anyway, as you said, it's possible via the command-line. (One thing that took my attention is that the installer program doesn't print a word about that.) I really want a straightforward way to install Owl, so I can easily (re)install it on that particular machine anytime I want. Here's a possible solution: 1. Build a suitable kernel from source and append it to the Owl Live CD and adjust LILO bootloader. (*2) 2. Create a simple script to perform the partition task and append it to the Owl Live CD. Is there a better way? --- (*1) http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/software-raid (*2) http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/kernel-build
