The other two (4GB each) to be configured at installation time as a software RAID0 housing a single LVM2 physical volume with three logical volumes for root, home, and swap.

OK.  We have a tentative diagnosis.  That's good.  Is there something I can do to verify for sure that this is what's actually happening and give us a clue as to what we need to do to fix it?

I'll do the udev stuff you requested in your previous email (I'm traveling right now, but I'll get to it after I return home -- the middle of next week)  Is that enough to complete the diagnosis, or are there other tests we can/should do?
