Default Really simple and quick RAID questions...

I've got 2 500gb hard drives that I'm planning on setting up in a RAID 0 with my Windows Vista machine and have three really quick questions.

First question: Once setup, will both drives show up as one drive under my computer?

Second Question: Do I have to reformat my main drive drive to pull this off? I've got about 400gbs of files on my main drive, including my OS, and I don't have the money currently to buy an extra External Drive. I do back up my stuff, but it's done threw Mozy online and would take forever (I could only download around 9gbs a day) to back up everything.

Third Question: I've never done this before, is there anything really important that I need too know?

Thanks much,
