Need to recover data from RAID5 array with just two out of three working disks

http://askubuntu.com – When I go to bring up the array with mdadm, it complains I don't have enough components to start it. This makes sense, since RAID5 normally takes a minimum of three disks.. but I don't want to buy another 2TB drive with prices what they are at the moment.. I just want to start it in degraded mode, get my data off of it, then use them as separate drives, copying the truly important stuff to both of them :) (HowTos)
