 	I had a scientific linux 3.0.4 system (rhel compatible), with 3 
ide disks, one for / and two others in linear raid (250 gb and 300 gb 
 	This system was obsoleted so i move the raid disks to a new 
scientific linux 3.0.7 installation. However, the raid array was not 
detected ( I put the disks on the same channels and same master/lsave 
setup as in the previous setup). In fact fdisk reports that the disks are 
not partitioned.
 	I had around 70 gb data on that array I would like to recover. I 
used dd on the disks  and strings on the resulting file. The data is there 
but fsck complains about superblocks and fails.

 	Recommentations on how to proceed are greatly appreciated.

 	Best regards,
