My first advice is just to wait at that prompt for a few minutes, and
then look in /dev.  It can take a little while for the device node to be
created, and the scripts aren't that smart about it.  There has been
some discussion about sleeping until md0 is created or some time limit
expires, whichever comes first, but I haven't seen that implemented yet.

Good luck,
