On a software raid 1 configuration, grub does not write MBR to the
second drive.  Thus, if the first drive fails, the second drive is not
able to boot the system.  One possible solution is listed here:

 http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-grub/2002-03/msg00047.html

Another is to use lilo for raid 1 configs.

Take a look at
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-grub/2002-03/msg00047.html.

I think the partition that grub config files are installed on (/boot)
has to be ext[23].  Otherwise you get a Error 17 something about unknown
filesystem, IIRC.  So, I have /boot on /dev/md0 mirrored across
/dev/hda1 and /dev/hdc1.  I ran grub and configure hdc:

device (hd0) /dev/hdc
root (hd0,0)
install /grub/stage1 (hd0,0) /grub/stage2 0x8000 (hd0,0)/grub/menu.lst
install /grub/stage1 d (hd0) /grub/stage2 0x8000 (hd0,0)/grub/menu.lst
