        Ah!  Thanks.  That worked.  Well, it got the console working.  Now to
find the problem...

        I rather suspected that might be the case.  Taking a quick look at
the /dev directory, the drive targets have changed from /hdX to /sdX,
and are now way at the end of the list, rather than "a" and "b". Now
that really shouldn't give mdadm any grief, but I think it is.

        Mdstat and dmadm -D both show all the arrays inactive, but if I try to
assemble them, it says they are all in use.
