Does it make sense to set a PC up with an operating system drive, and
two "document drives" in a RAID1 array?

There's a practical benefit to having a seperate operating system and
document drives, and I would like the safety net of mirroring the
document drive. I just don't know if having a mixed system presents any
complications.

I just added a Raid1 array to my setup. No complications here. Vista
just sees it as another hard drive.

It depends on your system usage and the capabilities of your system
components, however here is some help:
