You can't have two different RAID levels in the same array, but you can have multiple arrays on the same controller (which is probably what you want).  This is a fairly sophisticated controller and should be able to maintain two arrays with no problem: http://www.lsilogic.com/files/docs/marketing_docs/storage_stand_prod/raid/mr_3202E_ss.pdf
