Help me restore a RAID5 array?

I have a software RAID5 array in Ubuntu. According to the SMART status, all the devices are okay (one has "a few bad sectors," but the health is green). I have 5 drives, but I can't get the raid to assemble! I'm about to try raid create as outlined here but it looks risky and I was hoping to see if there's something simple I'm missing. [more inside]

Will this RAID survive an Ubuntu installation?

I have an Ubuntu installation with a software RAID. The Ubuntu installation is on a separate disk than the RAID. If I reinstall Ubuntu, will it find and mount the RAID successfully? [more inside]

An array of choices....

Looking for advice from other mefites on how to best use the additional disks I've purchased to expand my current home Linux server. RAID5/6? Native ZFS raidz? Something else? Also curious about use of iSCSI instead of SMB for things like Time Machine, etc. [more inside]

I broke my mp3 collection =(

I accidentally booted my two mismatched WD SATA AHCI drives in a RAID0 array and now the audio output from the media stored on those drives is static-filled and echoing (when it plays at all). Have I hosed my mp3 collection completely? [more inside]

Vista, XP & Ubunty Tripple Boot on a Software Raid?

I managed to trash my partitions today trying to install Vista RC1 and dual boot XP (my fault, I did something stupid). Anyway. Since I'm starting from scratch I was thinking it would be amazing to install Vista, XP & Ubuntu, but I'm not sure I can even do that. My problem is that I'm doing a software Raid (0) of my system drive. I know with my old computer it looked like a nightmare to get Ubuntu and XP to share a software raid and I was hoping maybe things have improved, or that my new motherboard/raid controller might work better now though. What do you think? Can it be done? Thanks! [more inside]
