i've stumbled upon a fix for my issue.
1. fail /dev/sdc1 in the raid array
2. format /dev/sdc1 with a filesystem (i used ext3)
3. boot ubuntu normally
4. let ubuntu run its disk check
5. delete /dev/sdc1
6. create a new partition for my degraded raid array
7. add the new partition back to the array and rebuild
anyone know if i could have saved this trouble by using tune2fs or
something like that?
