Default Raid 1 Question

I have 2 computers, which are identical. These computers each came with 1 hard drive. I have 2 additional new hard drives available (Blank) and want to install 1 on each computer, and then configure them as Raid 1.

Question is, can I plug in the second hard drive on each computer, configure it for RAID 1, and then will the information on the first hard drive automatically build the second hard drive? Can it be that simple?

What if the second hard drive that I install has some data in it (Or OS), will that data be erased and rebuilt from the first hard drive??
