At the moment your best bet would be to set the fakeraid card to JBOD and
simply use linux software raid. Most proven method.

There's experimental support however in Lenny for installing on fakeraid
using the dmraid driver. You start the lenny installer with

'install dmraid=true'

There's some info on: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/SataRaid

I haven't tried it myself though, I simply use the JBOD / software raid
