I'm sure in NASlite's current form no. But if the daemon (mdadm) were installed and left running (on a future NASlite version), and an entry in fstab to mount /dev/md0 to a directory were written in NASlite--maybe.
Question then,how to get the mdadm config file written to the NASlite config floppy.
I would use a live -cd that has the raid tools on it to do the inital setup & config of the hard drives. Then reboot the NASlite server and the raided drives would conceivably show up.

Don't forget that raid setup involves writting a disklabel to the actual hard drives thus if you moved them to another linux distro (as long as the mdadm daemon was auto started as is usually the case today) then just adding the entry to mount the drives in fstab and rebooting brings up the very drives.
