Question problem with How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System

Hi there,
I'm following the guide by Falko and thought all was going well - all until the first reboot. After the system shuts down and starts back up, I get a lot of error messages and it all culminates in a "kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!".
These are the messages I receive:
scanning and configuring dmraid supported devices
creating root device.
mounting root filesystem.
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setting up other filesystems.
setting up new root fs
setuproot: moving /dev failed: no such file or directory
no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults
setuproot: error mounting /proc: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: no such file or directory
switching to new root and running init.
unmounting old /dev
unmounting old /proc
unmounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: no such file or directory
Kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!

Any suggestions?? AFAIK, I followed the tutorial to a T and did not receive any errors while running any of the commands.
I'm running CentOS 5.3.
