Create a raid 5 array of the whole disk set and then put LVM across it. You
can then create logical volumes within the LVM volume group, and these
are the equivalent of partitions. 

Remember to have a non raid 5 partition for /boot (eg, either RAID1 or
just a plain disk partition (ugh)), because IIRC, neither grub nor lilo
can cope with booting from software RAID5.
