have decided to go for the safe shot and made raid1 partitions for /boot
and raid10 for the rest
not really sure if it would have been possible or easier doing this at
install time, but doing it on a running system has its advantages.
for those interested i have made some notes

this leaves me with 1 thing i can't figure out so far and that is that i
can start grub from all 4 disks as planned, but i can only boot in my
case from hd0,0 and hd3,0

is this correct for raid10???? it does make some sense but i'm not sure
