RAID setup after installation?

It is possible to setup a Level 1 RAID on a system running RH6.1 after a complete installation and has been running for quite a few weeks?

If so...I need a walk thru...and i am willing to give a few points for it ( up to 800 )...

Here is the system setup:

hda: 6.4 gig - This is the main drive where the installation is
hdb: 8.0 gig - This is the drive that I wish to use as the RAID

hda has 5 partitions:
     hda5:   /usr
     hda6:   /home
     hda7:   /var
     hda8:   /
     hda9:   (swap)

I have RH6.1 right out of the box so the raid is enabled...and I have raid tools installed(came w/ it)

(more info available upon request/necessity)

You can't do this. Setting up a software RAID device includes wiping all data on the existing partitions of the drives in the RAID set.

But it IS possible if you can wipe all data, and then set up the RAID. Also note that AFAIK the system itself cannot reside on a software RAID.
