RAID 5 problem
I had raid 5 for data, with 3 disks: /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd.
Also there is a system disk /dev/sda.
I add another system disk that become /dev/sdb so the raid disks become /dev/sdc /dev/sdd /dev/sde.
Since the raid disk didn't start I made a mistake and try to assemble the raid with the previous configuration:
echo 'DEVICE /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd' > mdadm.conf
mdadm --examine --scan --config=mdadm.conf >> mdadm.conf
mdadm -A --scan
Immediately after that I understood what I did and now I try to fix it.
Now the situation is that I have the raid but can't mount it:

# mount /dev/md0 /mnt/RaidData/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
Can anyone help me before I do something wrong.
