For what it's worth:

I have a similar configuration, (other disks though).

And I dont boot on a disk controlled by Promise, but I do have my /home
and /usr located on a raid-5 system controlled by Promise TX2.

I didn't do anything on the disks controlled by Promise during
installation, instead I installed a software RAID controller and started
to move various mounts to the RAID system.

(Phu, it sounds so simple when I wrote that, believe me if I tell it
wasn't, just because I'm one of those idiots that still think it's best
to try out without the manual first. :-)
