Do you want the guide to cover 1.6 of 2.0?

That info is all wrong for 2.0..... (and even for current).

It may even be worth modifying sysinst to make the job easier?

eg allow for the 64 sector raid header when partitioning the disk.
Maybe even write the raid description (raid1 with one copy!) to the
raid header.  Then it is just a matter of mirroring onto a second disk?
