Booting off of a MD striped drive?

Hi. I have 2 drives, MD-ed together, that I'd like to boot off of.
Right now I have a root partition on the first one, and the rest of the
first one is striped with the second one. Is there a way to make them
into one BIG drive and just boot off of that (i.e., ardcode 'mdadd
/dev/md0 /dev/hda1 /dev/hdb1' into the kernel). Could an initial ram
disk be used? Could I have a small root partition to set up the MD
device and then unmount that partition and remount /dev/md0 as root?
Even better yet, is there a kernel parameter I can pass to MD that will
let it know that md0=hda1+hdb1? Thanks for any help 'yall can give me.
