Just received my new pc with a K8N Neo 4 mb and win xp pro installed. As far
as I know, my 2 SATA disk are not in RAID. Every time I boot I get into "Sil
3114 Sata RAID BIOS", the system timeouts after approx. 30 sec and goes
further into windows. Is this a normal behavour? If not, any solution?

You should know that, because you have set up the system yourself ;-)

Check if you could reduce that timeout to a few seconds. Maybe there are
some more hints in the manual.

Check if the Sata drives are using the Nvidia controller. If they are
disable the Silicon raid controller in the bios. Most normal users do not
need 6 Sata drives!

Thx mate, disabling the raid controller in BIOS did the trick!!
