I'm moving to exchange 2k3 and i'm starting off with a fresh new server

We use HP proliant DL's here.

My questions are -
I want to use raid 0+1 or raid 10(deoending on price) for the trans logs.
I want to keep the exchange binaries and db seperate from the logs on a raid 5.

To do this, do i need 2 raid controllers or can i just do this with 1?
alos the proliants seem to only support 6 drives and for this solution i will 
need at least 7. 
Has anyone had experince with doing this on proliants with the smart array 6i 

Thanks a lot
