While this most likely works, I went a diff route.
Based on this article which is Cliff noted below, I was able to get it working.
The latest dracut fixes the issue but I rebuilt initramfs to be safe.
So my order of operation;
1 - install Centos 6.1 with a software raid 1 config then rebooted of course
2 - yum update
2 - cd /boot
3 - mv initramfs-2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64.img initramfs-2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64.img.O
4 - mkinitrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64.img 2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64
5 - reboot
Hope this helps any futures comrades in arms.
