You'd use it just like any other data storage or hard drive. Are you asking how to install Windows or how to create the array? Or what type of array to create? Since you didn't give enough information, I'll try to predict what you want. If you want reliability and data security, setup a Raid 1 array (mirroring). If you want increased performance, setup a Raid 0 array (striping).
Bah.....the odd's of one of your 2 HDD's going out is about the same as a single drive in my opinion. Plus, if your rig is strickly gaming like mine, you don't really care about losing data, lol. I'd aim for a RAID0, it owns.
I *think* RAID0+1 is RAID0 with a backup drive in the array, but I'm not sure.
