How do I set up a RAID1 on just my data volume?

I am making a computer that has 4 hard drives, 2 drives that will be just for data (where I want the RAID1 setup), 1 drive that will have the OS running, and 1 other drive for other data.

The 2 RAID1 drives are going to be internal drives, while the other 2 drives are going to have the ability to hotswap, they are each in there own case drawers.

the motherboard is an EVGA X58 E58-A1, and the hard drives are all SATA that will support AHCI.

How do I go about this?

I forgot to add, how do i set this up in the BIOs, I would have to set the SATA Mode in AHCI since i will need to to disconnect one drive, and not set it to RAID, which what I will need to have for my RAID setup.

I never did a raid setup before, so please bare with me

I plugged in the 2 Data (RAID1) in the 2 red SATA slots on the motherboard, I am assuming those are the 2 slots where RAID happens, and where the JMB363 driver is., and set that to RAID Mode in the BIOS.
