Need advice on building a system with a Raid drive

I am building a new system and plan to use two 
300GB drives in a raid 1 configuration. However,
I have read where fbsd can't boot from a raid
drive, but it is not clear why.

Can anyone confirm if this is a valid restriction?
Will I really need a boot drive separate from my
raid drives?
