I installed Debian with RAID + LVM at the text installer stage many 
times. One can install almost any RAID + LVM mix directly with the 
installer.
No problem since many years, but I always use ReiserFS, even for /boot. 
I also use RAID1 instead fo RAID5.

My home server :
* hda1, hdc1 : /boot, selected by the BIOS
* hda2 + hdc2 : RAID1 + LVM, for system FS (/, /var, /usr, etc)
* hda3, hdc3 : bare swap
* hda4 + hdc4 : LVM (/home, /backup)
* hdb1 + hdd1 : LVM in stripped mode (/video)

My hosting servers have similar setups, with DRBD in the game (network 
RAID1).
