No, in fact if you are in a hurry build everything as it is then mirror it afterwards because it will trash the discs for a while and slow everything down while it creates the mirror, you could leave this overnight for instance.

Your disks will need to be Dynamic discs already or converted to them in the area Jay_Jay70 mentions above.

Always best to get a RAID card to do the work really though rather than relying on software mirroring.
