Profuse apologies for any wrong list, missed faqs, etc. But I am looking 
for help with using gvinum to set up a raid volume. I have read the 
handbook, and I sort of understand how it works, I just cannot seem to 
figure out how to "do" it.

My setup is a box running 6.0-RELEASE, I have 1 200G wd drive that I have 
set up as the os and I have 6 200G wd drives that I want to combine in a 
raid (hopefully 5, but just knowing how to do any would be great).

Any pointers to howto docs ins the form of "first do this, then do 
thiis, etc." would be helpful mostly I don't understand ow to prepare the 
drives in the array to be used by gvinum. I could probably figure out he 
rest on my own given enough time and monkeys.
