Personally, I've always found vinum to be a rather weird piece of
software to work with, so I'd suggest you go for onboard RAID, but I0m
not sure if VT8237 RAID1 is supported right now (however, atacontrol
can also do RAID without any direct support for the chipset). If anything,
I'd also look into raid(4).
