Or just don't apply that raid patch.

You answered my question so I'm giving you the points. I'm trying to apply the patch, but having trouble and I'm not a
programmer. It gives me an error on the line that the second bracket is on.
If you're pulling it up from www.deja.com, maybe try the button at the bottom that says 'view original usenet format' and cut'n'paste from that - the deja formatted copy might make the patch process barf.  

Do you really need the raid patch at all?  I thought it had been incorporated into 2.2.14 final (but I'm probably wrong.)

The new raid Software Raid HOWTO at linuxdoc.org states the new raid is supposed to be better and easier.I
just ordered RH6.2 and I'll look at that. I'm trying to make a squid server. The company I work for has a national intranet. I have a web site of sorts on it now. It's a learn as you go thing. I need to know more. You told me what was causing the problem, which was a big help.
