Installing Striped Boot SATA Raid Help Needed

I am trying to configure 2 raptor drives as a bootable striped raid array on a XP machine. The mother board is a Gigabyte GA-K8NS PRO. Here's the product details: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...128-241&depa=0
I made ithe striped array in the bios setup. Then booted off of the xp cdrom. I hit F6 and installed the raid drivers. Then xp goes through first install process. The trouble is when the computer restarts to do the final xp install, it does not load. Any ideas. I wish this was a RTFM situation, but the manual does not mention this at.

TIA,

Shya

Strange one.

You might make sure you have the correct drivers on the floppy.

X, they are the raid drivers. Could I install xp on a non sata drive, then ghost the xp install to the raid. Then rename the drive letters?.
