    So I'm going to be setting up two firewire drives in a RAID 1. I've read that once this is done, the finder will automatically mount the RAID drive once all the drives are connected. But what I'm wondering is if I create the RAID, will I be able to connect both drives to other macs and have the RAID mount on the new machine?

    You should be able to yes. The drives themselves should tell OSX that they are part of a RAID array. Plug them in before turning the Mac on, then check in Disk Utility if they don't mount straight up.
