Thank you for your helpful reply, Gremlin!
You're right. Thanks for the RPM's, specially the first (I'm using x86).

>(and other filesystems as well, most likely "/owl/var" and "/owl/home").

I've just read from (*1) that "Owl's installer program - settle -
is not able to create software RAID devices yet". Anyway, as you said,
it's possible via the command-line. (One thing that took my attention
is that the installer program doesn't print a word about that.)

I really want a straightforward way to install Owl, so I can easily (re)install it
on that particular machine anytime I want. Here's a possible solution:
  1. Build a suitable kernel from source and append it to the Owl Live CD and
adjust LILO bootloader. (*2)
  2. Create a simple script to perform the partition task and append it to the
Owl Live CD.

Is there a better way?
