moving a md array (RAID)

I have recently moved the inside of my box around and need to alter the md(x) specification of an existing RAID1 array.
The original raidtab was set to have two disks in md0.
I need to move this array to md6.

Can I do this without having to destroy the data? If so how?

FYI. Solved it. I just mkraid in the end. This just replaced the MD superblock with on labled md6 and that was it.

mounted the reiser filesystem on it and it was all there. Cool.

Thanks for the response.
