Every motherboard-based RAID solution is essentially software RAID (provided
by a windows driver) in combination with a BIOS patch which allows the
system to boot from the disk array.
The software RAID implementation in Fedora 6 should be able to adapt to the
on-disk format of most on-board solutions, including the nvidia version, but
if you're not planning to boot from the disk array you might want to use the
default vendor-independent disk layout which should be easier to migrate to
another system if needed.
