Which kernel version are you using?  IIRC there are bugs in 2.4.18 WRT
the md code.  When I had md working on sparc (I no longer use md) I
believe I got it working with 2.4.21, so any recent kernel should do.
My Ultra 60 is currently running 2.4.25+debian+ben's patches and it
seems to be happy.

Good luck,
