raid config

I configure partitions in Ubuntu server 8.1 during load and make them raid then make my raid devices mdo, md1 etc. After this I go back and assign file systems and mount the devices and this is where the trouble starts. This error displays itself "the kernel was unable to reread the partition table /dev/mdo (invalid augment). This means Linux won’t know anything about the modifications you made until you reboot" but when I do the devices are gone and I have to choose configure raid select yes and finish and the devices appear again but they are not correct. I correct them and the message appears again.

Linux can certainly read anything the hardware offers, to it they are nothing but character files, but do md0 md1 belong to the same device/hardisk?

This is not an error it is a warning. Continue with your configuration and the RAID will be fine.

The config is 3 identical drives. I am trying to build a raid1 for /, raid0 for swap, raid5 /home, and two more for /var and /srv across all drives.

The partitioner is warning me that it can not read the mdo then md1 and so on.
