Kernel Panic: Booting into RAID 1

Debian 3.1 on Pentium 4 Linux Kernel-
Booted with Knoppix, created partitions etc...
PCI ATA RAID 133 by I/O with a Silicon Image chipset
I followed the instructions for configuring my RAID 1 device on Juerd's website.
When I do
#watch cat /proc/mdstat
I don't see the discs synching. And each partition is labeled:
Which I assume means unused.
When I run LiLo I get:
Warning: COMPACT may conflict with LBA32 on some systems
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not match '/dev' directory structure.
Name change: '/dev/cloop0' -> '/tmp/dev.0'
Warning: '/dev' directory struicture is incomplete; device (240, 0) is missing.
Linux *
My lilo.conf looks like:
When I try and boot the system I get
md: ...autorun DONE.
ReiserFS: md2: warning: sh-2006: read_super_block: bread failed (dev md2, block 2, size 4096)
ReiserFS: md2: warning: sh-2006: read_super_block: bread failed (dev md2, block 16, size 4096)
EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock
EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
FAT: unable to read boot sector
VFS: Cannot open root device "902" or unknown-block(9,2)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(9,2)
I keep restarting my installation by booting into Knoppix, fdisk to delete the partitions, zeroing the superblock. Then I reboot Knoppix and follow the instructions on Juerd's site. Any suggestions on how to remount the file system so I dont have to keep reinstalling? Also, any suggestions on what I might need to do to solve the problem?
