When installing XP it will say Press F6 to install additional RAID or SCSI drivers. Hit F6 and make sure u have ur RAID floppy!

Go to your motherboards Makers site pick out your model and find the sata drivers, or sata raid in your case.

Hmmm... i'm having trouble fitting the drivers onto a normal floppy, is there no way I can bang it onto disc and do it that way instead?

I can't see why it wouldn't work. The windows install should not need the win xp cd while u install the RAID drivers.
But u might want to get a confirmation about someone, because I am not 100% sure.

They wont go corrupt. Use one for now. Then install windows on that with normal sata drivers. Then install the 2nd hard drive and dont form a raid. Let windows auto detect it then format it in Windows allowing you to save files on that hard drive so if the one with the operating system messes up you can reformat and keep the files on the other hard drive
