Can anyone pint me in the direction of a website that shows how to setup RAID 0 on a pc with two SATA drives or does anyone know how its done?

Do i need to install XP first on one of the SATA drives or is this done after RAID 0 is setup?

Thanks for any help.

This depends on whether you're using hardware or software RAID controllers. Read a couple of the beginner guides.

Its pretty easy if you have or go download your motherboards manual(or a similar motherboard with the same controler) it will cover how to set it up via hardware and most will also do it via software i know my mobo manual had a great setup instructions with screenshots and everything its easier when its written just for you.

Also when you are going over it remember to balance wether RAID is worth it for you, you sacrifice data integrity in order to achieve a small performance boost if one dirve goes all the data is lost.
