Drat. Double drat.

O.K., then let's ask him to change the name and get this thing on the
LDP site and mirrors.

Not quite. I hear from people who are using what they consider to be
"stable" Gnu/Linux systems, namely running RedHat 6.0 and/or RedHat
6.1. RedHat's kernel now ships with RAID patches and RAIDtools-0.90.
RedHat has the most users of any Gnu/Linux distribution at this point,
and thus gets the most questions. What I really meant was that we
should move the HOWTO's that aren't being maintained, and focus on older
software to an "unmaintained" section or something, so that they are
still available, but when people look at them they realize that it's not
necessarily current. This would also help people who want to help out
with the LDP by taking up maintence of HOWTOs that aren't being

At this point, I just want to make the documentation more easily
