If you use a hardware RAID adapter, you can make two LUNs from the 
disks. So make one big RAID5 array but two logical drives. I would still 
use LVM anyway for management down the road.

Not all hardware RAID adapters might support this, but if yours does you 
will get data protection for "free" on your system drive.
