You could also consider having a separate 2GB boot partition on each disk, without glueing them together into a RAID0. In normal use, you'd keep them all identical, using rsync or dump|load or something, but you would also have the ability to test upgrades by installing on only one of the multiple boot partitions. (I do this with a two-disk system, with a small boot partition on each disk, and a large RAID0 over "the rest" of both disks.)
