Haha, forget that. I just looked at the man page for mdadm. 
Mindblowingly difficult indeed, too much for this bear of little brain.

Time to figure a new course of action, but alas, both Arch and Gentoo 
appear to require far more time than I have for setting up those systems.

As a matter of fact, I need only a base system - with a precompiled 
Xorg, thank you - and the build-essential packages. I can then build the 
apps I need.

It would certainly simplify things here if AV Linux were 64-bit savvy. ;)
