You may also find your motherboard manual has a pretty good raid setup guide. Mine did.

Why do you want a RAID 0 configuration when it'll give you little, if any, performance increase and expose your data to being unrecoverable once one of the drives die?

But anyway, its your computer so your choice. The link you posted to looks okay. It may vary slightly with your board though.

You will only see performance increases when you do benchmarking, and even then the gains are insignificant to a point that in real world use, it'll be no faster than it was with just one drive.

The only real benefit RAID as a whole has is its uses in company servers and what not; it doesn't really have any place in a home environment because it doesn't offer any extra benefits.

When a hard drive fails in a RAID 0 setup, you lose everything on it, period.
