Can't detect Hard Drives

OK, so I have my motherboard up and running, and my BIOS is now fine. Now I have another problem. The VIA RAID. I pressed TAB to get into the VIA RAID setup, and did everything it said in the manual to create an array. I pressed ESC as it said, and it rebooted as normal. I pop in Windows XP Service Pack 2, and it takes quite a while just to even get to the blue setup screen....say, 10 minutes. I press F6 to install the VIA drivers from a floppy, and it installs successfully. Then I reach the screen that says "Welcome to Windows XP setup" and then I click enter to install, but then it says "Windows cannot detect any hard drives" or something along those lines. Yet, I set it as a RAID array. What's wrong here?

I'm using two Western Digital 32GB hard drives, as RAID 0. They have been completely formatted.

Another problem I see is that my array never saves. I set it as an array, but when I quit out of the program, and I see the VIA screen, it doesn't show any Arrays set up. What's the problem here?
