Okay, before I go and blow everything away. I just want to check.

1. I should be booting off the running kernel I have
2. I should be doing a dmraid -a n && dmraid -a y
3. I should then be building the new kernel initrd
4. For initrd to be built properly I need to be running the container as 
/ ?? like I said, I tried by booting off the ata hard disk, with 
2.6.18-1, I did the stop/start and then built the initrd having modified 
the fstab to point to /dev/mapper/isw_... 

Other than that, yeah, I agree it's possible that by using fdisk 
manually I've potentially misaligned something that maybe anaconda fixes.

*sigh* back to the drawing board.
