Thats right.

Yes, the device /dev/raid0 which is a RAID 1 set and is mounted on /.

That sounds right. When I build the RAID 5 set originally I built it
with wd1, wd2 and wd3 (using wd0 to bootstrap it) and then added wd0
in after it was working. So it looks like I didn't reboot and check
the array was working properly after adding wd0 to it. Not good.
