It's easier to just rebuild the raid0.conf from scratch. Boot off an
install CD and take a S.W.A.G. at your prior configuration. Use
'raidctl -c' (and NOT 'raidctl -C'!!!) with your replacement conf file.
If correct, it will pop straight up. If it's not, no harm and no foul.
Alternatively, grep through each of the raw disks for '^START' and hope
for the best:
for x in /dev/rwd0a /dev/rwd1a ... /dev/rwdxa
echo -n "$x ... "
grep -a -40 '^START ' $x >> /tmp/crossed-fingers
