(1) I didn't even know Jaguar's Disk Utility had a RAID pull down menu. 
I thought it was a tab.

(2) You cannot drag volumes in the RAID setup tab, only drives, for 
obvious reasons.

(3) Is your boot volume on one of those drives? RAID requires 
initializing the drives, and the OS does not allow initializing the 
boot drive.

(4) Keep in mind that, while Disk Utility allows you to create a RAID, 
you can't use it as a boot partition.
