For Windows XP you will need to download the latest Asus RAID drivers from the Asus site for your specific mobo and put them on a floppy/USB disk then do this.
  1. Restart Comp
  2. Use BIO's to change your boot priority to DVD/CD first
  3. Run the RAID setup and confugure both drives you will be using
  4. Put in your windows XP boot disk
  5. Boot from it (duh)
  6. When it is loading files wait till it says "Press F[something - I can't remember]"
  7. Follow the setup to install the drivers
  8. Dun Duh! Your finished
Hope this helps

Vista is MUCH easier - It does it all for you

The raid setup on this motherboard was a pain. you need to use the red and black SATA ports that are side by side. Then you need to get into the raid menu (Ctrl + i) and you should be all set from there. Make sure you have the F6 disk before you start the boot from CD to make one sucks.
