fsck failed on raid 5 setup

I recently had a hd fail on me to the point where it started clicking every few seconds. This even made the other hd on the same ribbon not show up on boot up. It was one of 4 drives I had in a raid 5 setup. I removed the drives so the other three all show up but when I boot up I get

fsck.reiserfs /dev/md0 failed (status 0x8). Run manually!

I tried to run

Fsck /dev/md0

But it recommends that I run –rebuild-sb, which asked to enter a Block size, which I do not know. I don’t even know if that will fix the problem I am having.

I would like to fix this without loosing the data on the hds!!!

I can still boot to the gui since that is on a completely separate hd.
I only have 3 of the 4 drives in there now since the 4th fubared, but plan to get a replacement for it.

I am running suse 9.3 and setup the raid 5 in software using yast.
