no, the raid drives do work after the system comes up and I can use them with dmraid -ay as usual.

I will put the first part up that shows the scanning of the drives (the log is on my other computer that I used to do the serial console capture).

In looking at the console log, the seek errors seem to start right after the first nash mount command, which is mounting the /proc filesystem.  (I know it says mounting proc, but the line before that is the actual mount command.  In FC4 it said "mounted" proc at that point, different tense (smiles).
