There are many articles on setting up a RAID.
I would suggest that you start with this one.

- Windows XP Professional, which I will assume you are using
- A mobo or controller card with RAID support
Both your drives have to be identical in size and speed. Also, what are you looking to accomplish with RAID? Speed? Redundancy? These are important factors in determining the correct RAID type for your needs.

both drives are 500 gigs, stupid question but if i was to choose Raid 1 where it writes data to the drive twice, do I loose that 1 TB of space back to 500 GIGs since its copied on both.. I dont know much about raid
thanks for your replies guys

Two 500GB drives, in this configuration, will give you 500GB of storage.
