At this point, I'm willing to try anything, but preferably something
that's stable since this will be done to at least 15 identical devices
and sent out to various places, so I won't have physical access to the
machines if something were to go wrong.  I looked into graid3 and
booting off of a DOM/Flash card, but since I have 4 drives, that won't
work since graid3 requires 2N+1 drives.  The stuff I've found on
graid5 seems to say that it's all still really experimental and has
some bugs in it still. :(

That said...if you've got it, I'll try it. :)
