Most things went fine, although figuring out how to rout the cables in the case was a bit tricky. I ended up takeing out the lower section fan so I could run cables through the fan hole. The silicon rubber drive mounts are much softer then the ruber ones on other Antec cases like the Super LANboy, so you can not tighten the screws all the way. It took some doing to figure out just how tight was tight enough to keep the drives in place with out crushing the mounts.

I must say, I liked the fact the Antec kept the front pannel cables (HDD LED, power switch, etc) conected as a strip insted of single as most other caes do. It made for much less clutter. There was one bit of panic when I first turned the system on and got no video, but it turns out I had forgotten to plug the P4 +12v line into my PSU :doh

I will get some pics up at some point, but right now I'm still trying to fix my RAID problem.
When you load the OS hit "F6" when prompted... a few minutes later it will ask for the drivers. Load the drivers once and then repeat the load! After that you should be fine unless it's a floppy drive issue!

Some feel it's not good to list the Serial #

I got the RAID problem solved. I think it was a problem with the floppy disks (I slipstreamed the drivers onto my Windows XP disk and it worked fine). I now have my computer up and running and it’s sweet! I promise I will post pics and benchmarks soon!

Yeah sometimes when I reinstall it doesnt like my disk. How did you slipstream them to your xp boot disc?

I used nLite. It rips your XP disk to your hard drive, adds the files you chose, then exports it to a .iso you can burn to another disk. I had added SP2 and my RAID drivers to my XP disk. You can also include user info, CD Keys, date/time info, etc. to make the install compleetly automated.
