On my Dell PowerEdge 1425 SC and Debian Sarge (unofficial 64 bit), i've software raid too.

I have configured RAID 1 using the Debian CD.
When one HDD crashes for example, i will receive an email from the system with the message that the RAID array is broken. So i can take action.

After that i can replace the crashed HDD for a new one.
Then Software RAID will rebuild & synchronise both HDD's.
Synchronising costs some time, but that is only after setting up RAID 1.

That's all.
