I'll just reply since no one else has:

1. Install Ubuntu Studio 9.10 DVD (an alternate, not a "live" disc)
2. Install mdadm & lvm(2)
3. Enter the following commands:
$ sudo mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 --uuid=(???) /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd
$ sudo vgchange -a y
4. Copy old fstab file into new fstab file. (It can be backed up on another disk.)
5. Reboot
These instructions seem OK, except I never needed to use the --uuid option.

Note: My experience the mdadm linux software RAID is limited to recovering NAS devices such as WD MyBook, Synology, etc ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
