You need to tell mount what the file system type is (ext2, ext3, reiserfs, 
etc.) if you don't have a line in your /etc/fstab.  Please post the 
relevant lines of your fstab.  Otherwise, use -t to tell mount what type of 
filesystem to mount.

OK, so you've got the raid drivers loaded, but no raid devices defined.  
Please post the contents of /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf

I'm not really sure what the above shows.
It doesn't seem like you want to boot off your raid array.  Is that correct?
