[mythtv-users] Mythbuntu or Ubuntu Alternate for RAID?

I've set up a backend using both mythbuntu and normal ubuntu. I like
mythbuntu because it does a lot of the work for you (like setting up
openbox to run your FE, remote controls, graphics, services, .htaccess
for mythweb, etc) Either way, there is lots of support for both, and you
can get all of the same stuff done, it's just a matter of how much you
want automated for you.

I'm trying to install my MythTV backend and would like to partition my
drives such that the system drives are installed with RAID-0 and the
MythTV space is on RAID-5 (both using mdadm).  I'm looking at the
Mythbuntu installation GUI right now and I can't see anything about

A quick search on the interwebs reveals this:

That mentions the Ubuntu Alternate CD install which seems much simpler
than using a LiveCD (including Mythbuntu's).

What are the pros and cons to using Mythbuntu over a normal "Ubuntu
installation using the MythTV packages"?

Is it only the space used for programs and the window manager?  I'm not
at all worried about that because my system partition is going to be
over 300GB when RAID-0'd...
