It depends on whether you want to do it during the install of the 
operating system or after the OS is already installed. It also depends 
on what kind of array you want to build, how many disks will be in it, 
how those disks are seen by the OS, etc.

The best thing to do is to search for "building a software raid array in 
linux". The tool is called 'mdadm', so reading it's man page will help 
you learn, too.
