    You need to create and initialise your array (sorry, but the manual on their website doesn't contain instructions) which will probably be done through the RAID BIOS rather than the main system BIOS (there will be a prompt afterward the main BIOS prompt).

    If you are installing WindowsXP, as the install starts there is a message prompting you to hit F6 to supply additiona drivers - this is what you need to do and the drivers ned to be on floppy so you will need to either connect one up temporarily or use a USB floppy.

    While we are on the subject though - you do realise that if you are using RAID0 and one drive fails that you lose everything don't you?
