As for grub2 on a volume without a partition table - I'll have to try it out.
GRUB 2 becomes the default bootloader in Ubuntu 9.10

That way I can assign another disk as a spare raid disk and have the loss of one whole disk replaced by another whole disk. Right now I can't do that as I have to partition both disks into two and create two raid devices: one for /boot and one for LVM. I can't assign spare disk to each of these as loss of a disk would try and map two spare disks to replace two partitions. Well, either that or it would fall flat on its face. It's so dumb I've not even tried it. GRUB2 solves this dilemma, so it can't arrive fast enough for me.

When I had to reinstall windows 7 the grub would then not load but gave a grub rescue message. None of the parameters to recover grub worked nor did any of the instructions I used from several "help forums". Ended up having to fix mbr in windows 7. I will never use grub 2 again unless a utility is developed to recover it and edit the entries.
