mdadm (get my array working again)

hi everyone,

right now i have 4 disks with a raid 5 on them, created with raidtools2. my raidtab looks like this:

raiddev /dev/md0
raid-level 5
nr-raid-disks 4
nr-spare-disks 0
persistent-superblock 1
parity-algorithm left-symmetric
chunk-size 128
device /dev/hda
raid-disk 0
device /dev/hdc
raid-disk 1
device /dev/hde
raid-disk 2
device /dev/hdg
raid-disk 3

i plan to use ubuntu instead of open suse, so i need to get my array working again on the new os. how can i get my array back using mdadm without destroying my data???

on suse i would act like i recover from a multible disc-failure with:
mkraid --force /dev/md0
