After doing more research I don't believe that this is the option I am
looking for because of "A RAID5 metadevice can only handle a single slice

Yes disksuite is free. It comes with Solaris 8 and is located "Solaris 8
Software" disk 2 directory in Solaris_8/EA/products/DiskSuite_4.2.1.

In your file...

d10 -r 	/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s1 /dev/dsk/c2t1d0s1 \

This creates a RAID 5 device (with 3 disks - you can have more - just add
them to the end). You can also specify the interleave size using -i.

Disksuite is very easy to setup - just make sure you make lots of copies of
the database or you will come unstuck!
