Default RAID Boot volume on OpenBSD 4.6 using softraid

Hello everybody !

I'm going to install a new x86 machine with OpenBSD 4.6 and I need to activate a RAID1 with the boot volume.

I've found many HOW-TOs that explain how to do that with non-boot disks, but this is not the case.

Can anyone point me to the right direction?

Thanks!!

You -cannot- boot from softraid or RAIDframe volumes. Let me repeat that. You cannot boot from softraid or RAIDframe volumes.

With RAIDframe, you can have -root- on RAID.

Those who use softraid -cannot- have root on RAID, and must be satisfied with using OpenBSD's altroot feature.

(I'm a RAIDframe user, and use root on RAID. Each physical drive in a RAID array has a small non-RAID partition for boot.)
