Rick, in basic agreement with Ray & Dodgeman, I'd say this in addition:

Definitely remove the subfloor decking before raising the floor. If your home was built in the past 40 years, you will likely need to cut the flooring near the outer walls, as the subfloor will extend under the walls. This is no problem, but definitely remove the subfloor within the majority of the room so that you are not creating a hidden cavity for termites to become active without being visible.
