setting up software RAID 1 after install

I've installed RHEL 3.0 AS and am now trying to create software RAID 1 filesystems. The only mention I see in the RedHat doc is during the OS install. I have installed the LVM and see nothing in the lvcreate or lvextend man pages indicating an option. Is this even possible after the install? If so, is there an online doc available?
Thanks in advance!

Should be possible with mdadm. I suggest checking out The Software RAID Howto for more details.
