Default dell 8300 SATA?

ok, my manual says that it is an opition for the 8300 to have sata hard drive. iv read online that i need a pci card for it, but When i opened the case there is two sata slots on my mobo. this is what i need to install 2 raptors right? Also, i have no floppy drive, are the raid drivers on my dell windows cd i'll use to install windows? if not, how/ where do i get and install them? Thanks for any help.

I think you can get the drivers from the site?

Default drivers

What i mean is are the mobo raid drivers on my dell windows cd or where? At dell all i can find is drivers for a sata controler card, not the mobo. When you are setting up the raid, iv heard you need a floppy for the raid drivers, but since im using my dell windows cd are they on that? Hope i made it more clear. Thanks guys.
