I boot from a software RAID 1 box.  Here is my grub.conf:

timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
default=0
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-10smp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-10smp ro root=/dev/sda3
        initrd /initrd-2.4.18-10smp.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-10)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-10 ro root=/dev/sda3
        initrd /initrd-2.4.18-10.img

and my /etc/raidtab:

raiddev /dev/md0
        raid-level      1
        nr-raid-disks   2
        nr-spare-disks  0
        chunk-size      4
        persistent-superblock   1
        device  /dev/sda1
        raid-disk       0
        device  /dev/sdb1
        raid-disk       1
 
raiddev /dev/md1
        raid-level      1
        nr-raid-disks   2
        nr-spare-disks  0
        chunk-size      4
        persistent-superblock   1
        device  /dev/sda2
        raid-disk       0
        device  /dev/sdb2
        raid-disk       1
 
raiddev /dev/md2
        raid-level      1
        nr-raid-disks   2
        nr-spare-disks  0
        chunk-size      4
        persistent-superblock   1
        device  /dev/sda3
        raid-disk       0
        device  /dev/sdb3
        raid-disk       1

What you want to do can be done.  Look over these two files and see if they offer to you any clues.  If you have additional questions please feel free to ask.
