That would only use the first two drives.  If I detect multiple disks, I
loop over them.  This was on a 7.3 (pre list-harddrives and logical volume
manager vintage) installer.  Updating it with logval should be somewhat
trivial.  (Of course, $hds contains a list of the available drives, but
determining that seems to be outside the scope of this thread.)

  echo "zerombr yes" >> /tmp/partinfo
  echo "clearpart --all --initlabel" >> /tmp/partinfo
  drive=0
  bootdevs=''
  rootdevs=''
  for pdev in $hds
  do
    bootp=raid."$drive"1
    rootp=raid."$drive"2
    bootdevs="$bootdevs $bootp"
    rootdevs="$rootdevs $rootp"
    cat << EOF >> /tmp/partinfo
    part $bootp --size 50 --ondisk $pdev"
    part $rootp --size 1 --grow --ondisk $pdev"
    part swap --recommended --ondisk $pdev"
    EOF
    let drive=$drive+1
  done
  echo "raid /boot --level=1 --device=md0 --fstype ext3 $bootdevs" >>
/tmp/partinfo
  if [ $numhd -gt 2 ]; then
    echo "raid / --level=5 --device=md1 --fstype ext3 $rootdevs" >>
/tmp/partinfo
  else
    echo "raid / --level=1 --device=md1 --fstype ext3 $rootdevs" >>
/tmp/partinfo
  fi
