Software RAID (RAID1) on different type of hardware. The only i can
specify about the hardware is that we don't use SATA discs on this
machines. I had the problems Sascha Wintz mentioned about partman(it can
not partition more then one disk) but I solve them by just doing the
partitioning of the next HDDs on post install level using the
base-config base-config/late_command.

The problem is that I wish to create the RAID on preinstall level and to
make the installer install the system over the RAID wich will be mounted
as usual at /target.

I allready found a way to partition the disk with sfdisk on preinstall
base and to create the RAID but the installer do not continue after I
comment the lins in the preseed conserning the partitioning(partman).
