Have an update. I downloaded the source for dmraid, rc13 and installed 
it for my machine. Still have the same problem though.
Detailed message at boot is:

device-mapper: table: 253:0: striped: Couldn't parse stripe destination
device-mapper: ioctl: error adding target to table
device-mapper: reload ioctrl failed: No such device or address
Unable to determine geometry of file/device 
You should not use Parted unless you REALLY know what you're doing!
Unable to open /dev/mapper/isw_bdbbdbcbda_MyRAID0 - unrecognised disk label.

he he, I like the part about using parted. Funny thing is I didn't! I 
used fdisk and made things the "old fashioned" way.

So, I'm running device-mapper 4.5.0 for FC5, is there a newer version?!
