Grrr. FC[5|6] won't boot after install on Sun Fire x4200

This has me completely flummoxed.

I have a Sun Fire x4200 with four drives internal drives on an (LSI) SAS1064 RAID controller. Drives 0&1 have been mirrored, as have 2&3.

The installation of FC5 (and FC6 tests) goes without a problem. HOWEVER, after the reboot the system stop booting at the point where grub should start displaying.

I've tried a number of variations, eg. grub on boot volume rather than MBR, etc.

Interestingly enough, if I don't mirror the drives, FC boots without a problem after the installation. If I then use the RAID controller to mirror the boot drive, I'm back to the "bad" behavior where grub never appears.

I hope someone out there may have run into this and solved it.
