[Techtalk] formatting half a mirrored raid...

[As if I hadn't had _enough_ experience losing
data already... ]

I just installed three shiny new 73 gb scsi drives
to replace my existing dual ide mirrored raid.

I was configuring the new raid and typed:
mke2fs -j /dev/hdd1 instead of ... /dev/sdd1

However, I stopped crying, remount the old
ide raid and everything seems to be there.

Did I actually format the drive? And if so, what
do I need to do to re-mirror that data in case
something happens to the "other half"?

Thanks for any help! :-|
