The Raid card makers recommend identical drives but they don't have to be identical.  It should work fine so long as the second drive is larger than the first.  I don't think this would be a problem for a simple upgrading or migration.  I have a PCI card that supports four IDE drives.  The drives are probably slightly faster than they would be connected directly to the motherboard, and the card I have supports stripe read with mirrored drives, so you get a speed gain there too.
How does System Backup work?  Do you reinstall W2k and then use backup to reinstate the previous system, or is it more complex?
