Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After I reboot, the swap (/dev/md1) is active. However, if I unplug one of the disk (sda) to test if the RAID works, the system still boot (I've installed GRUB on the both harddisks), but the swap (/dev/md1) is not active.
How should I go about enabling /dev/md1 to activate on boot when one of the disk is unplugged?
don't know how. When I get it working I will post the information. It may require some kind of script to check drive avaliablity. If it is then use this one for swap. If not then use this drive. That is what I was sort of thinking in terms of how I would write the script.
