Raid on a ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard

Hi all,

Decided I want to mirror my boot drive. I have a ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard. Never used raid on a home pc before. Would appreciate some help.

1. In a mirror config, is there much difference in speed between an 2x Serial ATA150 drives as opposed to 2x SATA 3.0Gb/s?

2. To setup, I should connect both drives to the SATA ports on the motherboard? What settings are there on the drives to indicate which is primary/secondary? Is it like the standard ide drives?

3. Once the drives are connection, how do I create the mirror, is this done in the Bios?

Thanks!!
Duncan.

    No, each interface is much faster than the sustained throughput of any trio of RAID 0 array, as well...

    (I would post this in the drives/storage area, as there are several folks that use RAID 0/1 more than I have...)
