Default Fresh Debian Lenny install with raid1

I am planning to install a new Debian server. My goal is to have raid1 functioning so that if either disk fail it will still boot.

Server = Supermicro with fakeraid, so I would like to use Linux software raid.
There are 2x 250 GB SATA disks.

I'd like to know more about partitioning and grub. I read articles about this but did not understand it all.

This is a test server so no harm done in any case.

Partitions:
Should I create similar software raid partitions on both disk ? I mean for / and /boot ...

Grub:
What about this, If I understand it correctly grub will be installed only on first disk ? If first disk fails it won't boot ?

Thanks,

Jysse
