you could add raid to an existing system to be used as a additional resource, but you can't just flip a switch to make the existing filesystems raid. it's possible to migrate a system from a standard filesystem onto one wrapped in raid, but that's really not fun, and not something to take lightly. if the WHOLE system needs to be raid, then i'd have to say that reinstallation is your best option. if you want to get to grips with setting up raid in it's own right, see the raid howto at tldp.org
