RE: starting second md device at boot time - Work around fix
In case other have this problem too; I haven't managed to find out why mdadm won't start my second array at boot time, but have instead put the assemble command in an init.d script and linked this to the rcS.d folder. It's not a perfect solution, but at least the array is now started when the system comes up and thwe file-system gets mounted before Samba starts.
thanks to Justin for all his assistance
