I know that ZFS is not well supported as MD raids. All I've found on

My goal is to boot from network and install Debian root on ZFS raid
mirror. I can do this using MD raid. I am searching for suggestions of
how to enable ZFS during installing from network and partition disks
Any suggestion and ideas a welcome.
I migrated my SOHO file server to FreeBSD specifically for ZFS. While
FreeBSD rocks as a server OS, I find that graphical desktops are better
on Debian. On Debian, I use BTRFS. I also use only one device for the
system drive, and keep it small (16 GB SSD and USB flash drives) to
facilitate taking, storing, and restoring images.
