All Samba sees is /home. It has no visibility into or knowledge of the 
underlying devices. So yes, it should work. I believe your problem is 
unrelated to having multiple RAID volumes. Based on your comments above, I 
suspect you simply haven't mounted it on /home.

The global consumer economy can best be described as the most efficient way  
to convert natural resources into waste.
