[ale] RAID and an existing partition?

Howdy all!

I'm looking at creating a software raid array from 2 60GB drives using Linux
on 2.4 kernel.
  One 60GB drive already has data on it that I want to mirror.  The other
60GB drive has data I want to overwrite.

1)  I'm assuming I need to repartition/reformat the second drive?
2)  Will there be any problems with the data on the first drive?
(theoretically it should keep all my data and just copy it to drive 2,

btw, I've never setup a RAID with an existing system, only newly built
