Description: tool to administer Linux MD arrays (software RAID)
 The mdadm utility can be used to create, manage, and monitor MD (multi-disk)
 arrays for software RAID or multipath I/O.

 This package automatically configures mdadm to assemble arrays during the
 system startup process. If not needed, this functionality can be disabled.

---> Looks like downloading & assembling an older version might work?  I've not done any assembly work since 1977-78, so I'm a WEEE bit rusty on it! ;+)
