raid1 re-synch after install?

PowerEdge 2550 with two 18GB SCSI drives.  Installing 7.1sbe from
Dell-supplied CDs.

Identical partitions on each drive configured as raid1 set for root
file system.

During install, activity lights flash on both drives - looks like it's
writing both copies of the mirror.  However, upon completion of the install
when the system reboots it enters into a synchronize operation which takes
1-2 hours.  Is this correct behavior?
