Do you have a SCSI controller? And what drives are they? If they are anything less than U320 150GB+ drives I wouldn't bother as they'll be quite slow. And if you don't have a controller, don't bother either. A decent RAID controller is going to be expensive, definitely a PCIe one otherwise you'll be limited to the ~ 133MB/s that the PCI bus is limited too.

If you have a card, then it won't be that hard to setup. As long as you have proper cables w/ termination and as long as your motherboard is able to post fully.
