Hmm. One of my servers has a following Vinum volume defined:

drive drive0 device /dev/da0s1e
drive drive1 device /dev/da1s1e
drive drive2 device /dev/da2s1d
volume ftp
        plex org raid5 128k
                sd length 8248900s drive drive0
                sd length 8248900s drive drive1
                sd length 8248900s drive drive2

Until today I was under impression that this *is* RAID5. Am I wrong?
