Well Keith, what basically happens is that your os may not come up and you
might infact get a message from the os loader when the os is trying to come
up. depending on which drive failed you may have to edit boot.ini to get the
os back up. Then when in NT go to disk administrator and break the mirror
(of course replace the failed drive first before all of this), and then
choose the good drive and the new drive using the shift for multiple select
and reestablish the mirror. You will then live happily ever after. I know
some of the info sounds somewhat vague but I cannot remember exactly what
menus you use in disk admin and what the exact errors message may be from os
loader. Hope ive helped.
