Is it possible to boot from a hard disk having a raid partition ?


I wanted to implement raid5 such that one partition is from my laptop's hard disk and others from other hard disks. After making one partition a raid partition, I rebooted the system. The computer stopped mid-way during booting, and brought me to the shell. On typing fsck -p, it told me an unexpected error occured in the partition which I had made for raid.

Is there some condition that we cannot boot from a disk containing one of the raid partitions ?

As far as I remember, /boot HAS to be on RAID 1 in order to boot.
