Not to my knowledge. The OS is CentOS so you would need to rebuild the
ISO with whatever config you wanted. See "How do I make a custom CD?"
on http://www.nuonce.net/bq-cd.php and Google for the RAID config files.

I'm still slightly confused, to me this is like trying to soup up a car
with a small engine :-)
I hope that helps.
