Unhappy FreeBSD 8, ZFS storage across four disks

I'm trying to build a new FreeBSD server for home storage. I've read the zpool and zfs man pages, but am getting a bit lost with the ZFS setup. My config is:

- 1 x 250GB disk - O/S install
- 2 x 750GB disks, 2 x 1TB disks - data

I'd like to configure the data disks so that I have 2 lots of 1TB+750GB (1.75TB) mirrored, presenting 1.75TB of usable, mirrored storage. Do I create a two zpools of 1TB+750GB, then another zpool over the top to mirror them? I found a command of
# zpool create tank mirror c1d0 c2d0 mirror c3d0 c4d0
- perhaps this is the 'right' way?

Can anyone offer advice?
