Default Software RAID

I've read a little about this, but I had a question... Do you still have to use identical drives? Or could I perhaps set my 80G to 20 and 60 and then use my other 60G(both drives I beleive are 7200RPMs)

What I was asking is if I could use my 60G drive and my 80G as a 20/60G and RAID the 2 60G partitions, but it's no big deal... I decided I best keep the 80G intact so I could revert back to it. I'm trying Longhorn on my old Athlon 1.4GHz, and it's REALLY dragging it's feet O.O
