Note: This post deals with technical issues. If you're not interested in the underlying nightmares involved, or not comfortable with technical matters, please ignore this post. I spent several ours trying to get the RAID partition on Ultra1 for userspace to be recognized by the normal kernel. The problem is that I implimented MINGO's patches back in 2.2.17, and the md device created isn't recognized by the normal kernel without the patch. The normal kernel wants the devices used for the RAID partition to have a partition type of oxfd for auto-detect to work (but manual starting it doesn't work either, if you try to start it as a new type it says must not be a persistant superblock type partition, but it is). When I created the partitions initially, I set them to type '5' Linux Native. Trying to change these with fdisk (the Linux verson), it fails to change them. Says to reboot to make sure they're changed, but that doesn't work either. Is there a newer version of fdisk that correctly updates partition tables on mounted SCSI disks?
