My policy when configuring my alpha is that it is difficult enough as it is, 
without adding extra complexities.  I would therefore recommend that you 
start by getting Gentoo installed on a separate small hard disc.  Only once 
you have the basic OS together with the RAID and LVM tools installed on that 
should you try to configure RAID and LVM.  Then you can move your partitions 
over to logical volumes.

I use LVM2 (but not yet RAID) and that is how I did it.

Good luck,
