RAID 0 is striped... so (1) is not the best idea, fake RAID or not. I put together a RAID 1 Ubuntu system a while ago, wasn't the easiest thing. I needed to use the Ubuntu Alternate CD and went from there.
If one drive got hosed, you're probably out of luck as far as recovery goes. Striping spreads the data between both drives... faster, but if one goes out you're kinda screwed. You can try the recovery with the Alternate CD, but don't expect much if the drive itself is dead. If it's just Windows you have a chance, though.
