RAID 10 on Fedora 16

Could someone help me with a RAID 10 setup on Fedora 16 with disk druid, as trying to do it on a brand new install.

If I chose 1 hard drive at install I can see how this is setup, but I am having difficulty knowing what to change to make it into a software raid, have googled this extensively and tried to understand various guides without any luck, dont follow what there saying as finding them a bit vague on some details.

VolGroup 1144192 lv_root 51200 / ext4 lv_home 229472 /home ext4 lv_swap 4992 swap

sda sda1 1 BIOS Booot sda2 500 /boot ext4 sda3 285686 VolGroup physical volume (LVM)

Ideally I would like to be able to take a drive out should it fail and replace it with another and for it all to be ok. I believe this would be possible with raid 10.
