Thumbs down Linear RAID recovery

Hey all,

I've got a Linux box set up with two RAID-1 partitions and a Linear RAID partition for storage. If one of the drives fails its pretty simple to repair RAID-1 and reassemble. However for Linear is it possible to just kill the linear RAID array .. reformat the two partitions that used to make it up and recreate the array? I've tried to unmount the device and do all of this but it comes up as busy. Can anyone help?
