well...todays hdd's arent as fast as the bus...
so there are for example the Western Digital Raptor drives which are
faster than some other drives...
and also the the controller makes a difference (not only for raid, also
for single disc performance)
as far as my expierence is with raid0 with 2 40GB seagate ide hdd's it
desnt make that mauch of a difference for random reading small files,
only for big files (viedos, ...)...

last time i checked there was a option in d-i (at least in expert mode)
for settion up ad linux software raid...so it should be such a problem
(havnt tried it though, i use raid1 only for my homedir and some
important data...irrelevant at install time
