Still a PITA though. This is why I got rid of my RAID 0 array - I lost a drive and had to reinstall, and didn't enjoy it. Didn't matter that the drive was still under warranty.
Now that array is RAID 1. I never used anywhere close to the full terabyte of space anyway, so it wasn't really worth the risk.
