HOME BUILD PC

I AM BUILDING MY OWN PC AND HAVE PURCHASED A GIGABYTE GA-81K1100 M/BOARD. I AM PLANNING TO ADD 2x 120GB SATA HARD DRIVES, USING THE CONNECTIONS RAID0 AND RAID1. I ASSUME THAT THIS IS THE CORRECT WAY. DO I HAVE TO EXTRACT DRIVERS AND LOAD THEM VIA A FLOPPY DRIVE PRIOR TO LOADING THE O.S..THE MANUAL WITH THE BOARD DOES NOT SAY MUCH.
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW???
THANX

You would find such in the manuals with the machine/hardware or call the supplier and ask where the manual is.

The exact steps vary with the OS and the hardware so I can't tell you how to do this.

not to bash you but you sound kind of like a fool saying "connections RAID 1 AND RAID 0" those are froms of RAID...RAID 0 is data striping and RAID 1 is data mirroring...how do you want them connected depends on which form of RAID you choose...

If you are installing Win XP, for most

mobo's you must hit F6 when it is offered by the install routine, to install the drivers for the RAID as well as SATA from the CD that came with the mobo. This option only shows for a short time. This gets the drivers installed before WinXP starts installing. There are one or two mobos that don't require that. One is the new MSI.
