Default cannot mkfs.xfs /dev/sda2 on Ubuntu Server 8.10

I have Ubuntu server 8.10 [64-bit] on a RAID 10 Array (amlost) I followed the guide to partioning my HDDs found here and all was well until I tried to follow the guide for Minimal Ubuntu Server Install I get
Code:
mkfs.xfs: cannot open /dev/sda2: Device or resource busy
when I enter
Code:
mkfs.xfs /dev/sda2
I have partitioned [4] 1TB drives just like the guide says using cfdisk:

-sda1 50MB boot; sda2 999000MB Linux raid autodetect; sda3 1000MB swap
-sdb1 999000MB Linux raid autodetect; sdb2 1000MB swap
-sdc1 999000MB Linux raid autodetect; sdc2 1000MB swap
-sdd1 999000MB Linux raid autodetect; sdd2 1000MB swap

Any ideas what I need to do?
