Quick lowdown. I had a 3.6TB raid5 using 5 1TB HDs on my ubuntu 9.04 server and a seperate HD for the OS. The OS disk crashed, and now I am trying to re set up my raid5 array using mdadm. I typed in fdisk -l and this is what I got.

When I type ls /dev/ to see if sd[abcdf]1 is there i dont i only see /dev/sd[abcdefg...]. My question is how do I get the raid array back, or atleast go about recovering the data I had on it.? Thanks all help is appreciated. I am also just starting out on linux so might not understand some of the lingo thrown at me.
