Puppy 4.3.1 and RAID


Newbie here

I boot from a Puppy 4.3.1 CD to move some files around on a XP system with RAID

I have learnt from a forum that mdadm is needed

Not a clue how to implement this with a Puppy boot cd so that it will read RAID disks

Please help

Thanks

Have you installed mdadm yet? If not, it is available at Kernel.org. Check the man pages; I think that there is an option that will look at a disk and try to reconstruct the raid. I have used mdadm to create a raid on puppy, but I have never tried to read one written by something else.

Thanks

I have to be careful not to destroy the disk by unwittingly formatting etc

I downloaded 2.6.9 a few days ago, but have no clue on how to get it to execute in Puppy

I created a folder "md" in /dev to hold device files for my assembled RAIDs. A generic assemble command would be something like:
Code:
mdadm -A /dev/md/0 /device/1 /device/2 ...
