Well, classic case of not seeing the forest for the trees. I was expecting to
have to do something 'different' to use the raid array. As it turns out, pretty
much like using a normal disk - partition, format, newfs, and away we go.
        Thanks to Doug Otto, Andrew Greer, Benjamin Cline, Peter Keating,
Patrick Shannon, Hooman Abrishami, Sridhar M. Special thanks to Jeff Hodge for
letting me know someone else had gone through the same experience.
