Daisychaining 2 external drives for Raid1

Can I daisychain two 1TB drives to create a Raid1 on my MacBook Pro? (I’ve read the Disk Utility instructions for the OSx piece.) Is it as simple as connecting Drive 1 to one of the Firewire 800 ports on Drive 2, and the other FW800 port on Drive 2 to the Firewire 800 port in the MacBook?


did you ever work around this issue?
