Exclamation Removal Of RAID Array During Bootup

Hi All,

I have an FC7 server running however the SCSI RAID array that was running off the back of it has majorly failed!

now whenever i try to load up FC7 it will not load up the GUI, the server keeps asking me for the root password to repair the file system.

Is there any command I can use to tell it not to look for the array (/dev/md0 and (/dev/sdj)

the error message is shown below

Checking filesystems
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/exchange'
fsck.ext3: Invalid arguement while trying to open /dev/md0

*** An error occured during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
*** Warning -- SELinux is active
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery.
*** Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
Give root password for mantience
(or type Control-D to continue):

after trying CTRL + D the system restarted and came up with the exact same message

I typed the root password in and it displays the following

(Repair filesystem) 1 #

what command do I need to enter here to tell the linux system not to look for the raid array, I dont particularly want to reinstall the system as I have got some configuration setups on there that took me most of the day to setup

any help/comment would be appreciated

Many Thanks,


EDIT: LABEL=/exchange is the folder that /dev/sdj is referenced to
