I haven't found a way yet although I wish you could specify the second 
spindle as "missing" it would be useful.  You can convert your system to 
a RAID system without much difficulty other than just the time it takes 
to move data to a new disk later.  I posted an email to this list at the 
end of either June or July last year on the steps required to create a 
RAID array out of a non raid system.
