Convert existing CentOS 4.3 install to RAID1

I have an existing CentOS 4.3 install on an IDE harddrive. I would like to add a second IDE harddrive of the same size to the machine and do software RAID 1. I have seen many complicated ways to do this. What is the best and easiest way to do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
