RAID5 3x 3TB SATA drives, help!

I cannot get this to work!

Using NetBSD 6.0.1/amd64 with 3x 3TB SATA disks as RAID5, booting from a CF card.

I've set up a dk partition on all 3 disks, set the RAID up on dk0, 1 and 2, created a new dk3 device on the RAID. All works so far but I'm unable to mount dk3 as the root file system; it seems that NetBSD doesn't support autoconfigure of a dk file system, unless there's something I've missed?

Have googled and found this:


which seems like someone's having the same problem. Googling is limited as it sees the "dk" in the search string and tends to return a whole lot of Danish websites...

Is there a HOWTO somewhere on how to do this? Failing that is it possible to change the root filesystem "on-the-fly" from wd3a to dk3 before going multi-user?

Thanks in advance... while I still have some hair left!
