When I set up RAID (Pressing F10 when I start my computer).
There's an option, "Boot", which I can set to 'Yes' or 'No'.
I left it at default, which is 'No'.

What does it mean? Should it be set to 'Yes'?

I just got to know that the boot option has to be set to 'yes' before i install windows.
...
Which I will do the next time I format my computer, which is within the next 10 days.

If youre not going to use RAID for the system disk keep it disabled.(which is advisable if youre going striped, only way to do raid really in a practical way for a home user is mirrored but even at that youre usually better with two disks and just copying files) Raids not really for a home user its a business server tool where you have large numbers of high capacity drives.

Ok...
I'm just going to get rid of it.
Actually i did it because I have too much space, and I just wanted a way to spend half of it. =D
And a bit also because a couple of weeks ago, I lost C:\ on one hard drive...
