Hi Stefan,
the easiest way would be:
1. create a /boot partition
2. create 2 raids - one for lvm,
   the second for temporary installation
3. format the second raid & install debian on it,
4. create VG & LV's on the first raid, and trasfer 
   the temporary installation to it 
   i use:
   cd /
   find . -xdev | cpio -pm /mnt/newroot
5. modify fstab & lilo.conf to correspond to the new
   installation, rerun lilo
6. boot in the new installation, if everything is OK,
   you can create PV of the second raid(the temporary installation)
   and add it to your VG,extend your LV's and the FS on them
7. that was all :)
