I am not sure if the installer will automatically recognize an
RAID and set it up for you while preserving the data. If it does
you can jump over to another VT, manually start the array and then
it to use that as /home without formatting it.
It should recognise it and start it on reboot. You can also start it
with /etc/init.d/mdadm-raid start by hand. Once it's started, it'll
be listed in /proc/mdstat and you can mount the filesystem from
fstab, where you need to make an entry.
Thanks to both of you, I was hoping that'd be the answer.
