You have two possibilities :
1 - Declare the RAID array during the install, give it a mount point, but
DO NOT format it ! ;-)
2 - Do nothing, just ignore the n individual drives, the RAID metadevice
and eventually (certainly) the LVM PV/VG/LV... After install, just add the
package "mdadm" (and eventually "lvm2"). At boot, it will automatically
detect the RAID MD and the LVM LV. You will just have to create the
mountpoints and to edit manually the fstab.
It works fine, I did it yesterday (solution 2) ! ;-)
