The problem is that r0 is no longer on the mirrors so you cannot
install that. Anyway, there's a fairly easy workaround: install using
the 4.0r1 images, and when base install fails, do base install again -
this time it will ask you which kernel version to install.

RAID setup in d-i is fairly easy, even if maybe not very obvious (you
first need to mark some partitions for RAID, then go to a RAID config
tool, then configure the md partitions). You won't need a special /boot.
