Device does not exist

I'm having problems with devices. I put on a clean install of the latest
Debian stable release. Then I downloaded and installed mdutils.deb, since I
want to have /usr span a couple partitions on 2 drives. When I use

        mdadd /dev/md0 /dev/hdb4 /dev/hdd3

I get a message 

        Device /dev/md0 does not exist.

Of course, it _does_ exist in the filesystem but somehow won't be found.
BTW, I'm signed on as root when I try this.

I had a similar problem with one of the sound devices. I've an Ensoniq
Soundscape card and recreated the kernel and pertinent modules (this on a
previous installation). When I tried to run ssinit (the initialization
program for Soundscape), I received a similar message.

Thanks in advance for any help!
