The RAID controller lets you build more then 1 logical device.  The constraint is that the disks in any specific device must be same type, i.e, if you have both SAS & SATA then the same LUN can't be a mix.  Are disks same make/model?  If so, then just select 2 of them and try to do a RAID1 to start it off.
