GEOM - how do we replace a failing HDD?

Hi all,

We are trying to use GEOM to make a RAID-1 system
(using a pair of identical IDE) and it is quite simple
to setup.

Does anyone know how to replace the hard disk if any
of the two disks fails? There does not seem to be much
clear documentation, if any exists, about this.

More importantly, if the first HDD fails, can we just
stick a new HDD and it would boot from the second HDD
and GEOM will synchronise it?
