This kind of brings up another question, if I create a raid 5 with 3
or 4 disk and have my system only one 1 disk, and that one disk blows
up. Will it be easy to replace that disk and see the
raid5/lvm/selinux files? Or should I take the caution and put my
system in a raid 1 too.

I might not have to move the box after all, so I can put this test
for now. Thanks for your input though.
