I'm currently using LVM over a software RAID 5 on one of our servers,
/boot is a software RAID 1 array with an initrd to mount the LVM root

Just create the LVM volume on the RAID device, and that should be it,
keeping /boot out of the LVM is a requirement fwict, otherwise the
bootloader can't get access to the initrd or kernel image.

http://www.midhgard.it/docs/lvm/html/ <-- this is a good starting point

and if you throw the words "LVM on RAID" at google, you'll find lots of
information on it.
