RELENG_6 on HP ProLiant ML 350 G4p

Hi all,

I'm planning on getting a HP ProLiant ML350 G4p server
(p for the iLO). Apparently this machine has a 
Smart Array 641 controller for the SCSI HDDs.

I'd like to set up a RAID1 volume for the OS and
a RAID 5 volume for the data.

I assume the RAID volumes can be set up via
the RAID controller interface during the POST,
I think it's called RBSU or something like that.

I want to slice the RAID 1 volume for the OS
with /, swap, /var, /tmp, /home and
the RAID 5 volume with a /data slice.

No gvinum or soft-RAID.

I want to keep it as KISS as possible.

Does FreeBSD recognize the two volumes as
two disks and behave accordingly?

Has anyone on this list successfully deployed
a system in such a way?

Or do you have any suggestion to improve on this idea of setup?

Kind regards,
