comment Install Ubuntu server to run on a headless machine on RAID6-array of USB-sticks, in DHCP-less environment
A part of a problem was that the RAID was re-syncing itself on each boot. This helped: sudo update-initramfs -k all -u.

Well, I filled all USB ports on the motherboard except one (and except front panel), so not many options here... But thanks anyway.

I have to note RAID6 is a bit on a slower side. If I'd do that again, I'll probably try to RAID5. I get a nice 32 MB/s write speed, but from time to time writing process just freezes in D.

Hard parts: (1) find something with 4 USB ports that would not shut them down when all are in use; (2) set up boot with tftp for the thing, for Ubuntu network install /not so hard, actually/; (3) tell BIOS on the device to boot from the correct USB stick /hardest, had to borrow a display for that/.

Finally managed to install the thing (based on this, actually: help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID).

@aking1012: No, I have not. I do not have a 4-usb hub, but I can fix that. Care to point to a guide?

...But I can put anything on the sticks (and have a spare one handy)

No, or I wouldn't be asking this :-)
