Hi there,
I have been working a bit on making software RAID work in the 
Debian-installer, and have had partly success with it. My work can be found 
here: http://www.daimi.au.dk/~pg/debian/netinst-raid1.iso
But I have to warn you, people have had different levels of sucess with it.

However, it takes quite some time to make the support stable enough to be 
included in anything. And currently time is something I don't have too much 
of :-)
That said, I hope to be able to supply an up-to-date and a better working 
image within too long (I won't give any timeframe, and don't hold your 
breath, real life needs attention too).
Of course development will go faster if other people join in (especially 
people with knowledge of the d-i).
