I did this. But actually I have 2 partitions, one containing md0 with ext3
root and the other containing md1 with a physical volume.

skip the "error" word :)

Well, with auto start i mean the fact that the kernel finds the devices and
starts them. I suspect it is doing that because there is a bootflag on the
partition. I am not sure if the kernel can du that for all devices it auto
detected (i havd md0 on sda1/sdb1 and md1 on sda2/sdb2, only the first is
available before init).
