The easiest way (for now) is to install it on a standalone disk and then
copy that installation to the dmraid box. You will need two small changes
to rc.sysinit and mkinitrd to get it to boot.

I have just upgraded my dmraid FC3 box to FC4 (using smart) and FC4 works
just as good as FC3 with its root on a dmraid disk.

Kind regards,
