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?
