It says you need a floppy because you have to supply the correct drivers during the install.
What OS are you using? Vista and 7 will most likely have the drivers, you should be alright.
If you are using XP, then you need to be able to supply the drivers when you load the OS, as XP will not have them.

What Chipset?

If you are uesing the Intel ICH10R/ICH9R/ICH8R Windows 7 will install on a RAID without need of a driver disk, They are built into Windows 7.

IF you are using nVRAID, JMicron or other RAID controllers you may need a driver disk.

With Windows 7 you can add the drivers via USB.

just make your RAID array then reboot and enter the BIOS and under boot device priority make sure the RAID array is the hard drive selected. (IE: Intel Volume 0)

Then install Windows.
