No no no. You can't reformat while it's in use. I'm not sure as far as Vista, but boot the installation CD and it will ask you to choose a partition right? From there you can reformat, then you just cancel the installation, set up RAID, then format the RAIDed HDDs the way you want and install.

just insert the XP disk or w/e OS you want to install, and the utilities on that CD will reformat it for you (just make sure you hit OK and it'll wipe vista clean)
