Computer RAID on Solaris Question

Hello folks;
I'm trying to install Solaris 10 x86 on SUN X4150 box with 6 disks in it, the question is how can i create a Virtual disk like RAID 0 before i install Solaris.
When i boot up i don't see any option to go and create my raid before the installation begin.

Thanks in advance for any hint

Why do you want to create RAID before system installation??
I'm pretty sure that under Solaris itself it is much more flexible.

The issue is when I try to install Solaris first then run format, I don't see the rest of my disks, I only see the one with the OS
