Raid Mirroring ML370 G5 Rack

Is it possible to RAID two P400 controllers within a ML370 Rack mount Server.
The server has an additional Drive cage giving 16 Hdd's total, what I would like to do is have full redundancy accross both controllers and drives.

Each Controller has two cables connecting to each Drive cage independantly, is it possilble to raid the controllers together or is there something in the HP smart start that caters for this?

Any points of view welcomed.

You cannot create a hardware RAID with disks on two different controllers. But many operating systems have utilities to create a software RAID using 2 logical units (one on each controller in this case).
