Default Raid 0 Help.

Hey everyone,
I just built a new computer and I reformatted the HD`s and just installed windows on the primary drive with out the RAID ( Make sure there where not any Hardware Issues). Anyway I have 2 Sata 320 GB Western Digital harddrives that I want to run a Raid 0. I have never really did anything but I know the basics, I know how to enable RAID in my Mobo`s Bios and I know how to setup the RAID in the Bios. What I really need to know is how to install the raid drivers. I have a friend who said that with my Motherboard it was a B*TCH. I was wondering if anyone has my motherboard and give me a Basic Idea on how to get this to work. My Complete System Specs Are below.

[MOBO] Asus A8N-SLI Premium
[CPU] AMD Athlon 64 3800+
[RAM] 2x1GB Mushkin Enhanced Preformance DDR400 PC3200
[HD] 2x Western Digital Caviar 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache.
[VID] BFG TECH 256 MB Geforce 7900 GT
[PWR] Rosewill ATX 600 Watt
[OPT] Sony 16x IDE DVD Burner

Hardware Stripped (RAID 0) or software?: If software...convert disks to dynamic in Computer Management and rightclick the disk space and follow the wizard
