Default Raid 0 Question

I currently have a Raid 0 on 2 Samsung 120 gig SATA hard drives, I have a 3.2 gig IDE hard drive lying around, and was wondering if there was a way for me to have the operating system on the small IDE drive and use the raid stricly for storage. Getting the raid to work in the begining was nuts so If anyone has any idea as to how this may work please let me know.

Thanks

It's possible, just hook the IDE drive up on the primary IDE port set as a master, and simply create the SATA array, don't install windows on it.

Just be sure that the IDE drive is fast enough...

What's the speed matter? The only problem would be how slow his computer would boot after that.

Windows would fit on that. There would just be no room for anything else. The programs and all the other data would have to go on the other drives.
