Is it humanly possible to have a dual boot system and have it in RAID 0

I have three Hard drives.....
The three drives that I have are

1TB Sata
1TB Sata

And I edit . produce a lot of music/videos

What I am looking to do it have my 250Gb IDE drive as my Operating system (partitioned in two or something, one for Windows Another for Ubuntu)

And I would like when I am on either Operating System (ubuntu/windows_7)
its see's ,my computer as having a 2TB HDD (setting the two 1TB HDD's in RAID 0 )

So in Laymans... 250GB for OS's and 2TB (2 x 1TB HDD) as DATA drives

Is this possible?

I ham in a very similar situation

Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2
with 2 x WD320 SATAs for OS/s
(RAID 0 on the GIGABYTE RAID controller)

Plan to setup another RAID for the data drives
(on the P55 RAID controller, since it can handle 0,1,5 & 10, whereas the Gigabyte controller only does 0+1

XP is must-have for this box, so I'm doing that anyway, but hoping to learn whether even possible to add ubuntu on the RAID after that.
