 Well, I've done it w/ a G4 500, and an MDD 1.25DP. It's software RAID, 
but it worked just fine for me. Can't remember how to do it after 
install, but during an OS X 10.2+ install, it's an option in disk tools.
 As for speed, size, etc, I would use identical drives. But then again, 
maybe that's just me.
