Re: [tlug] raidframe on NetBSD

You may be able to set up raid during install, but at this point
you still need a standard ffs file system for the first and
second stage bootloader, atleast not using 1.5.2 version.
I didn't see anything to suggest this has changed. I think it
is still the case that only the pmax, and alpha ports can 
bootstrap entirely from the RAID.
