mdadm: breaks boot due to “is not ready yet or not present” error

I've got a RAID 5 setup for my /home partition. Every two to three boots my hdisks don't seem to be ready in time and my PC hangs saying that /home isn't ready yet.

I then have to manually activate it by pressing M and typing dmraid -ay.
This always activates the /home partition.

How can I tell Ubuntu to wait longer if my home-dir couldn't be mounted yet?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are you sure you are using dmraid? Because it does not support raid5. Unless you need to dual boot with windows, fakeraid should be avoided. See – psusi Jul 20 '11 at 13:58
