Recover Linux RAID

I have an openfiler box that uses mdadm to create a RAID array (RAID 1).

The openfiler box has some issue with it that doesn't let it authenticate with the domain anymore. Everything else works, and the file system is in tact.

I just want to kill it and turn it into an Ubuntu server box.

Question:

The two drives (/dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1) are configured as a RAID array and the array is in tact. How do I read the array from those drives to re-configure mdadm via the ubuntu desktop live CD?

1. mdadm --assemble --scan
2. cat /proc/mdstat to see the results
3. mount the device shown in #2. (/dev/md0 and /dev/md1 in my case).
