It's nice to see that the 8.04 advanced disk supports various options for RAID setup.

I installed with an encrypted RAID-5 / and an unencrypted RAID-1 /boot, so I should be able to survive the loss of any one disk.

The system wouldn't boot; it turned out the installer had set up grub on only one disk, and that wasn't the same disk that the BIOS was using to boot from.

Further, when I installed GRUB by hand, pointing grub's / at the unencrypted /boot partition so it could actually read it, I found the installer had left in the /boot prefix on the kernel image and initramfs file. Not sure if that could be made to work (I ended up creating a sym-link in /boot/boot).
