I had similar problems trying to set up a basic RAID 1 (not /boot)
guest.  I found Anaconda is full of bugs and wierdness once you stray
into the custom partitioning code.

Apparently kickstart is a better way to do this.

Perhaps, like Ubuntu's installer, the graphical part of Anaconda
should concentrate on doing the simple stuff, and leave everything
else to kickstart non-graphical installations.
