[RndTbl] RAID on Ubuntu

Here's my current hardware:
AMD Athlon 64 X2
120 GB IDE
3 x 750 SATA

What I'd like to do (please don't ask why) is install Ubuntu 9.10 on the 120
GB IDE, then set up a RAID 10 array with the remaining drives. Stop right
there! Yes, I know I'd need four drives for that. So, I want to know if I
can either set up two drives as RAID 0 or RAID 1, then later add a fourth
drive and without data loss, migrate over to RAID 10. Or set it up as RAID
10 initially with a "failed" (missing) fourth drive, then add the drive
later and "repair" the RAID 10 array.

Any hope?
