Raid On NSLU2

I'd like to setup raid1 on my slug but as i'm running an extended partition it won't let me. There's no important data on the drive so thought i'd repartition

doing fdisk on the usb stick on my linux box existing paritions was showing as

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sde1   *           1         257      263152   83  Linux
/dev/sde2             258        4354     4195328   83  Linux
/dev/sde3            4355       14996    10897408    5  Extended
/dev/sde5            4355        4419       66544   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sde6            4420       14996    10830832   83  Linux

for as new one I thought i'd try

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sde1   *           1         256      262128   83  Linux
/dev/sde2             257       14931    15027200   83  Linux
/dev/sde3           14932       14996       66560   82  Linux swap / Solaris

From http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/unpack.html I understand "you need to create /dev/sdb1 for the boot partition, /dev/sdb2 for the root partition, /dev/sdb3 as an extended partition from which swap (sdb5) and home (sdb6) are created." and any changes to be done in fstab.

My partition scheme above didn't work as I assume I didn't have a / partition? Basically I want 256MB boot 64MB swap rest=home. Can anyone recommend a parition layout for me?
