Looks like your correct, if I make a small partition on each drive and
format it ext3, then make the rest of the partitions RAID it works OK.

That disk druid is a mess, when trying to partition two drives. It keeps
moving the dam partitions around. for example I partition hda like I
want then make hdc1 to match hda1, then try to make another partition to
match hda2, it will change the first partition to hdc2 and make the new
one hdc1...
