I've setup several systems to use RAID5 for the root partition
and RIAD1 for the /boot partition. I've found raid
autodetect is a great idea in theory, but on some systems it
just doean't work. Rather than bother with fighting
autodetect, I usually create a custom initrd which calls
raidstart before mounting root and doing the pivot.
YMMV, its been about two years since I did the last system
like this but I don't think much has changed.
If you're interested, I can try and dig up my initrd
