Hi Borrajudo,

I am afraid there's no 'Setting a ...' up yet for dmraid.
Please follow the README an manual page which comes with it.
You want to start out reading

To sumarize the actual project status:

o you can activate Highpoint, Intel Software RAID, Silicon Image, Promise
  and there's basic support for LSI Logic

o You can't directly boot Linux off an ATARAID, because we don't have lilo/grup
  and mkinitrd patched (yet)
