Software RAID weirdness question

Is this something you might be able to describe in detail (what happened - how
you made it work) and could present to a LUG meeting?  I for one am very
interested in software raid as I have 2 2940 UW controllers and 2 4GB SCSI
drives and would love to have them mirrored.  One is in my Linux box and one is
in my NT server (sounds like SAMBA with a mirrored DATA volume to me!)
