Addendum: the usual linux installation do _not_ install the boot loader
onto both disks in a software RAID 1. This means if the first disk
dies, the second cannot be used to boot w/o fixing this issue first.

I dont know about ubuntu, but the debian boot disks support a "rescue mode"
where you can reinstall grub with a single key press.

The trouble with you, Shev, is you don't say anything until you've saved
up a whole truckload of damned heavy brick arguments and then you dump
them all out and never look at the bleeding body mangled beneath the heap
