Are you installing the OS or are you trying to implement to an extra hard disk 
after installing?

I only set it up in Debian at install time (mdadm) and although you need some 
partitioning background, it is prety easy. Let me know if that's your case and 
I can guide you.

I haven't tried in other OSes...
