Recovering RAID-5 array after OS crash

Fortunately, I'm not having this problem, I just want to know that there's support for it in case I do.

I'm running RHEL 4.0 (beta) and I'm setting up a software RAID-5 array with three 80GB disks. I understand how to recover data if a drive fails, but what happens if the entire operating system crashes (likely, given I'm using a beta version)? When you re-install, will Disk Druid just recognize and configure the array automatically?

Thanks in advance for easing my concerns!
