setting up mirrored server



I'm in the process of setting up a server with 2 disks that I want to mirror.  I'm using a Promise Fasttrack S150 Tx2 plus SATA card.  I've gotten the system to boot stating it has the 1 logical volume, however, when I use the Sarge DVD to do the install it reports the 2 physical drives instead of the single volume.  Is this correct or have I not done something right. Based on info I've found on google, it seems that I have to partition one drive and mimic the partition on the second drive.  Is this correct?

Thanks
