I have done this a couple of times successfully.

I did set the boot partitions etc as RAID1 on sda and sdb.  This I believe is an old instruction and was based on the fact that the kernel needed access to these partitions before RAID access was available.

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be able to say whether this is still required.
