I'm currently on 80GB IDE but soon I'll be getting two 250GB SATA-II drives. I want to connect them in RAID-0 configuration. I have some questions to ask: 1. Can my current IDE drive also be added to the RAID-0 group? I suppose not because of different interface (IDE Vs SATA), different capacity and of course difference in speed. 2. In case I can't add this 80 GB HDD to the array, can it be used as JBOD? i.e., is it possible that two SATA drives work in RAID-0 array and this one just like the current form. 3. How exactly do I setup RAID-0. My motherboard's manual has given a tutorial on the same but they are asking for RAID drivers. Now My floppy drive doesn't work(hell, floppy drives must die !!) so how do I put drivers. 4. I know about setting up soft RAID though disk-management. But then again, I don't wanna risk things. I suppose if someone of you must be having a first-hand experience of setting up an RAID array. Please help me out.
