Can you do what you want via the GUI installer?  Potentially by dropping
into a shell to do parts of it (eg build the raid array degreaded,
then use the GUI to install onto that).  If so, manually do an install
and then look at /root/anaconda-ks.cfg to see what file that built out.
It might provide the hints you need.
