I guess you mean the official Etch installer?

sd2 and sd3? Sounds very unlikely as disks are named sda, sdb, sdc, etc.

This functionality has been tested fairly extensively and is known to
generally work. From the short description of the "appropriate
parameters" we cannot determine if this is a real issue or an error in
the use of the partitioner by you.
- the output of 'fdisk -l' for both disks just _after_ the point where you
select "configure software RAID" and have confirmed that you want to
write pending changes to the partition table
- a verbose description of the dialogs you see after choosing "configure
software RAID" and the choices you make c.q. values you enter
