redhat install root mirroring

While installing redhat 4 & 5, it occurred to me that I don't see any options as far as mirroring the root disk or doing any sort of raid. My background is primarily solaris, and I would never build a solaris server without mirroring root at the very least. But I have no clue how I would go about doing this on a linux system, or how to check to see if any of our existing servers have mirroring. Any thoughts on what I need to do to set this up, or check the old servers to see whether they are mirrored?

Usually during the installation, you need to choose custom partition layout. There you will be presented with RAID options, LVM and setting up all the other partitions, etc.

Real admins that deal with Red Hat use kickstart though to install. And real admins get their company to buy hardware RAID controllers instead of relying on silly software RAID..
