Default Complete Hard Drive Wipe, RAID

I've been trying to reverse RAID-0 without any luck. I want each of my two drives at full capacity. I intend on backing up to disc a couple times a week...my goal is to get a new system in a years time.

I don't care about the information on these drives, it can all go away. I know of some free programs that completely wipe the drives clean...

The hope is that this will get rid of everything including the RAID software, and then all I have to do is go back in and install XP...then see my two full drives available.

Can you give me any tips/pitfalls, never done this before. Is there anything I need to do to prepare once they're clean...

There's a program called KillDisk that will effectively erase everything on your hard drive and format it to NTFS. Then, you can install Windows and you're good to go! I've used it at least 5 times and it has never failed and I've never had any obstacles.
