IMVAO, you're best off ignoring the BIOS-assisted Nvidia fakeraid
chipset on the Tyan, and instead using (on either machine, actually)
real software RAID1 using the Linux "md" driver.  The etch installer
will handle that without fuss (if you want to rebuild your system, as
opposed to just adding a mirror pair).
