Moving a server over to a RAID

 I have a server now that has one drive and is not set up on a RAID
using Ubuntu 8.04.

What I was going to do was boot with a Linux recovery disc, create a
RAID1 manually with mdadm on two new drives, and then copy all of the
data onto that then redo the boot partition.

My question is, when I reboot, will Ubuntu automatically detect the RAID
for me or are there modules I have to install ahead of time to make sure
the RAID gets detected? Also, would anybody else handle the situation
differently :D.
