Can you install the hardware RAID without a floppy drive?

So how exactly do you set the RAID up? Would I just enable it in the BIOS and then choose an option during setup, or what?

in the bios there should be some sort of settings that will do the RAID for you all you have to do is pick the two drives you wanna RAID and it should just do it like that
