Wait, why would it do that? Wouldn't that shrink your available capacity, as all drives in a RAID 0 array need to provide same capacity due to its set up.

With Matrix raid you can do what you are saying. Create a raid 0 volume first of the size that you want. This will be allocated to the outer portion of your drive which will give you the fastest throughput. Then you can create the raid 1 on the remaining part of the drive. This works well. When you boot you will have what appears to be two physical drives. Just remember to install to the correct one.
