Double raid 1 and raid 0 in the same mobo

Hello
I have an Intel P35qpro MB.
I want to make 2 sets of RAID drives:
1. RAID 0 + RAID 1 on two identical drives (meaning, one partition for RAID 0 and one partition for RAID 1).
2. same but on other set of 2 identical drives.

This way, I need 4 drives.
Now, I understood that in my mobo I have hardware controller of Matrix.
But my question is can I make these 2 sets in my mobo?
Cause I have the impression only 2 sata connectors are available for this kind of RAID. Am I right?
Thx,
Roy

RAID 0 + RAID 1 on two identical drives (meaning, one partition for RAID 0 and one partition for RAID 1).

what does that mean? perhaps you can elaborate on exactly you want to do, because its not inherently clear

are you saying you want to take each of your 4 drives, partition it in half, then have half of it in raid 0 with another drive and half of it in raid 1 with another drive? if that's the case then that's stupid and I don't know what the point is....if you were looking for a balance between speed and reliability, and you have 4 drives, you should just use raid 5.....not only will you have the same amount of space as you have in your setup, but it will be faster across all data, and will be reliable across all data
