What are you talking about? I think its time to brush up on your english 
reading and writing skills. It takes much more work, time, and 
complexity to 1) boot cd and install os 2) reboot to os and follow a 
complex procedure to setup geom based raid than it does to 1) boot cd, 
make gmirror with installer, install os.
