Well, I just had the glorious moment of ordering something from Newegg. Well, two somethings really. And those two somethings are two Western Digital Raptor drives to put in RAID 0.
I just wanted to ask a few questions about this. How exactly do I set a RAID 0 setup up? I have really decided (thanks to some input) that I will reinstall Windows from scratch on these two drives. I'm assuming I should load SATA drivers on a floppy before I start, just in case, right? How do I set up the RAID system before I install XP, and how do I tell the setup of XP to install to both drives?
Also, what power cords do I use for the Raptors (here's an image: click here
)? Do I use the SATA power, the molex connector, or both?
