There should be a total of four ATA connectors on the mainboard. The standard two will either both be black, or one will be black and the other will be blue. Off to one side there should be another pair of ATA pin connectors. They're usually a different color, such as yellow or red. Hook one HDD up to each of these two connectors both as masters. Then as you boot the RAID controller's BIOS will usually display what key combination to type in to getto the RAID configuration. Just hold down whatever keys are nessesary and then within the setup utility there will be an option to define a RAID array. Just select this and specify that you'd like a two drive RAID level 0 (striped) config. ZSave and then reboot. Boot from your OS disc and install your OS. Happy computering.

BTW. Be sure that you have the PC set to boot from RAID/SCSI. This way the PC will install winders (or whatever) onto the RAID array as a boot disk.
