Ok, I finally gave up on using the stock Debian kernel and recompiled my 
kernel.  The only change I made from the stock Debian config was to make the 
raid modles static (not modular).  The system now boots into root raid just 

If anyone knows whether it's possible to boot a root raid with the stock 
Debian kernel please let me know ... perhaps some initrd tweaks?

Next thing to do is verify that I can boot off both disks, we'll see how that 
goes ;-)
