    Stupid question, I suppose...
    Are you sdb1,sdc1 partitions "Linux RAID _autodetect_" ?
    All my raids use the md+raid modules builtin, no initrd, so I don't know
    if you have to force load of md on the initrd, or kernel will autoload if
    you use root=/dev/md0.

    Could you post your dmesg ?
