No that was a user-mistake. You should leave the installer do a first
'guided partitioning', then you have access to the software RAID
partionning. Then for each disk that is marked 'FREE SPACE' you need
to select it and state 'use for RAID'.
Once all physical volume are setup as RAID, select the RAID entry
(should be the first before the physical disk), then setup your LVM
volume group on it.
I cannot believe this is free software :)
