don't say "urgent" say "thankyou" next time. manners cost nothing.

yes you can put an lvm partition on a software raid block device. this way you can still expend by adding another pair of raid1 disks and extend the single LVM PV across it seamlessly.

i'll admit i've not done it myself, but it should just be a totally stadnard part of the rhel installation. i have no reason to think it won't let you use md0 as an LVM partition once you create it.

It's very easy. When you are choosing the filesystem for the raid partition you just select LVM as the partition type. Then you click on the LVM button on the main screen to edit the partitions. Let me know if you have any trouble.
