    11.10 - need to mount 2 x internal HFS+ RAID 1 drives

    Former system was Mac Pro, running OSX 10.5 with 3 internal drives. Bay 1 was the OS drive, Bay 2 and 3 were configured as a mirrored RAID (RAID1).

    HDD in bay 1 corrupted and had to be chucked away. Replaced with 500GB HDD and Ubuntu 11.10 installed just fine.

    I'm now looking to get the data off the drives in bay 2 & 3 (mirrored, so either will do...?), transfer it to the HDD in bay 1 and then format the bay 2 & 3 drives into something more useable in Ubuntu.

    - Can I mount just one of the drives to get the data? If so, how do I do this?
    - How can I mount the HFS+ formatted RAID1?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Anyone?

    After spending a month searching the interweb and trying various solutions, I'm at a total loss.

    I'm about to uninstall Ubuntu, reinstall OSX and get the data off the two internal HDDs.

    I'll then reformat the HDD and install Ubuntu as a single boot- that's my preferred option. But after this episode, I'm thinking about using a dual boot setup....
