booting off RAID in debian (kernel panic - not syncing)

i am trying to get software raid (mdadm) to work on debain (MEPIS) kernel 2.6.14-686.

so far i got mdadm working in the initrd (it says it working on /dev/md0 on one drive out of two, like planed).

when it chroots (two lines before the end of the init script) it tries to create two devices (console and another) and says it can't because root is read-only.

after those lines the kernel panics saying "no sync".

can anyone tell me what might have gone wrong?

i followed what was written in a few manuals on software RAID, no one seems to cover everything. for example
i am stuck at the part where it says:"Now is time to reboot and test things."
