thanks for the reponse,

I partitioned it with fdisk /dev/sda
p
n
p
1
enter
enter
p
w

then I went mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1

I then mount with:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/dr1
I did this with both the raids I had and when i run mount after I manually mount them I do see them mounted.  It is only on reboot that they become unmounted.  I tried editing fstab with:
/dev/sda1    /mnt/dr1   mount   defaults  0 0
/dev/sdb1    /mnt/dr2   mount   defaults  0 0

but it doesnt seem to work.

I solved the problem.  
The fstab entries:
/dev/sda1    /mnt/dr1   mount   defaults  0 0
/dev/sdb1    /mnt/dr2   mount   defaults  0 0

should be:
/dev/sda1    /mnt/dr1   ext3      defaults  0 0
/dev/sdb1    /mnt/dr2   ext3      defaults  0 0

which allowed for the raids to be mounted automatically on startup.
