Thanx to:
Kevin Colagio, David Evans, Arthur Darren Dunham, and

the general consensus was I would be much better served taking the machine
down. some people thought that I *might* get away w/ it but at the least
I/O would fail while the terminator was unplugged and I ran the risk of
corrupting the database. Not worth it. I have put the installation on hold
until we have a good time to reboot the machine.

as too the first question, after doing a full reconfigure boot raid manager
should find the array. I will post an addendum if I have any issues w/

thanx again.
