13 cryptsetup luks wrong device name in /dev/mapper/*

Slackware 13 Kernel have three hard drives. Root is on own drive sda1. sdb and sdc are raid via mdadm with two partitions. one for /home raid0 md0 one for swap raid1 md1. md0 is encrypted vi cryptsetup. md1 is encrypted vi fstab. everything boots fine and is accessible. However, /dev/mapper/* shows sda1 as block device connected to the raid md0. swap crypted device is correct in /dev/mapper/*. fstab is set correctly. problem seems to be with initrd. I would like the correct device in /dev/mapper so that I can access drive info; size, available space, etc. now info shows only sda1 info. Any help would be appreciated.

alienbob has a guide to make luks/lvm work. And a mkinitrdscript that is very good, maybe that does the trick!
