How to set up a raid 0

I have 2 drives and wish to use the following partition setup.
sda1 /boot 1GB ext4
sda2 / 50GB ext4 raid 0
sdb1 / 50GB ext4 raid 0

Unfortunately only Ubuntu server has the option to make a raid in the install. Can somebody point me to a howto on something like this up. I'm thinking I will want to install onto a sdb2 set up the raid and copy the file system to the raid.

Since you are not wanting to boot from raid it should not be too difficult. Have a look at the following article.

Thanks for that I should be able to work something out from this howto. I have always found the Debian Administration documentation to be quiet useful.
