the tool is called "mdadm", and it work like this:

mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2

this will create some devices in /dev/md*

you might also want to use LVM (logical volume management) on top of your software raid and use the advanved partitionning sheme (one partition per / folder except etc,bin,root and sbin) so you could gain greater security and stability
