Sorry, last time I've checked this thread was dec 14th or 15th
As you've sad, mdadm is really, really easy.
My only problem was the Promise controller. only debian recognized the drives connected to that controller, but it didn't like my mainboard (igpu/gb-lan).
One week and two cheap sil-controllers later I got it to work with ubuntu, but I'm not happy, I need more space.

I have an idea, but I'm not shur this will work.
Can I create two raid 0 arrays (2x250GB) lets call them md0 and md1 -> each 500gb
and then create md2 (raid5) with md0, md1 and two other 500GB hdds?
