multiboot on soft RAID

Hi everyone,

my system has two identical hard discs. One of them is empty, the other has three Linuces on it. Now I consider to merge the two discs together to a RAID 1 system. But after reading the Soft RAID Howto and other sources I have still a couple of questions left:

Do I have to configure the RAID system in each of my operating systems?
Do I have to create one RAID per system, or is it possible (and useful) to put everything together to one single RAID 1 used by all three systems?

Would you encourage me to do this, at all, or would you think that multiboot on RAID 1 doesn't make sense, at all?

I appreciate your comments, thanks in advance,
