In fact, if you add "dmraid -ay" to one of your startup scripts, you
can just update /etc/fstab to point to the RAID partition instead of
the component partition as it does now.
There should be a script called something like rc.local or
something-related-to-local in either /etc/rc.d or /etc/init.d - can't
remember - where you can add dmraid -ay.

One of them (the one without a number) represents the RAIDed disk.
The other two obviously represents partitions on that "disk".

google: mount man page
will tell you that the -t option to mount expects the next option to
be a filesystem type.
Thus the correct command would be something akin to:
# mount -t ntfs /dev/mapper/nameofyourPARTITION /mnt/whatever_mountpoint

Sounds like you've almost got that one pinned yourself.
