Additional Mounts During Install

Heyo! There's something I want to do, but I'm not sure how I'd go about it. I've currently two 1TB SSHDs in RAID 0 in my device, and I soon plan to install an M.2 SSD.

I'm going to re-install Fedora, and the M.2 SSD will be the boot drive, I'll have my /, /boot/efi, and swap on this drive. What I want to do with the spare two SSHDs is run them in RAID 0 and have them automatically mounted as a storage unit. Could I set their mount point as /storage during install, or something similar, but also have the perms user level instead of being root owned? Would I have to chown it after install? Any suggestions or advice welcome. :)

Welcome to ask.fedora. I have several extra partitions on different disks mounted at various points, all with the mountpoints specified by me when I installed. (Or, in my case, reinstalled.) I don't remember having to change the permissions on any of them, so my best guess is that anaconda defaults to them being world read/write. And, if it doesn't, it's trivial to use chmod to get things right later.
