Ahh, what heck did it say...  Upon boot in the middle of all that 
comforting green I saw an ugly red fail and as it was scrolling by I saw 
mpmpd.  And then searched around until I got to learn about mdadm, which 
worked out wonderfully as I haven't had a chance to read about raid much 
yet.  I just pick up things as I stumble along.  I'll check my logs...

mdmpd: mdmpd failed

That's all I see.  I've already removed the package.  I had some disk 
geometry problems (all is working fine now though) and I wonder if 
they're related?  Wish I had more information to pass along.  Is there 
another log I could check?

(unrelated:) One thing I do see that I don't like is;

modprobe: FATAL: Error running install command for sound_slot_1

This is all over the place.  I can't use xmms, the default cd player, 
grip or Rhythmbox to play cds, but xine is working just fine.  No big 
deal, I haven't had time to play with it yet.  Juggling a couple other 
things.  Any ideas though?
