The scsi drives are no problem (SATA can be a little tricky) but booting
off software RAID requires some work.  I put some notes up with some
good links on booting from RAID:

Installing an smp kernel after install should be trivial although I had
problems with the RAID trying to assemble before the SATA modules were
loaded with some kernels.  I wouldn't have thought it would be a problem
with scsi.
