I looked quickly on google and so far articles I see refer to installing grub onto the 2nd HD using the grub command. I will go back and look at the howto you posted and see if they say anything different. I am NOT the raid/grub master and sure not the final word on the subject.From http://dev.jerryweb.org/raid/ :
You may now continue by first installing GRUB on the boot sector and proceed with the complete installation of Debian which will be written symmetrically on the two disks in RAID.
Enjoy Debian with the RAID set up for both boot and data such that even if one disk crashes you will be able to restore your configuration (do not forget to give to your new disk partitions identical to the old disk and to copy GRUB to the boot partition if necessary).
This seems to be saying install GRUB onto the MBR of a disk (md devices don't have an MBR) and note that part where it says to copy GRUB to the boot partition. I don't know exactly what he meant by that since the only way I know to copy GRUB is to run the grub command and install it onto a MBR. By definition, a raid1 that is restored will copy all it's data to the replaced HD, leaving no reason to "copy GRUB to the boot partition" unless he is meaning the grub command.
If anybody knows different, please educate me.
