No RAID sets found

When my system initially boots up it goes through the settings it gives me the following messages:

"Remounting root file system in read-write mode
no raid sets
Setting up logical volume management
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=0 ignore
no raid sets

mount /dev/md0"

I did set up a software raid 5 array on my Red Hat EL 4 box and want to make sure that it is indeed running raid and not LVM. When I created the array I put three drives in md0 and left the primary drive as the root directory. I just want to make sure that it seems that I have it set up correctly because this is the first time I have done this in Linux and it appears that I have a drive that is starting to die.
