      I'm trying to set up a RAID 1 array on my slug, something I did before
      with another slug. For some reason that I can't seem to figure out, on
      a reboot the slug keeps mounting /dev/sda3 as ext3. Only it isn't ext3.

      I formatted the partition as ext3 a long time ago, but I've deleted the
      partition I don't know how many times and it still keeps being
      recognized as ext3, which is making it impossible to assemble a RAID
      array.

      I followed this guide here (which worked great in the past):
      http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/RAID1OnSlugOS

      I'm totally stumped - any ideas?
