I seem to be running through the forum today asking for more details.
What OS are you running on what kind of machine? Is the current hard drive running in IDE or AHCI mode? Your solution could go from as simple as "Copy the OS to the SSD and use the repair disk to make it bootable" to "Set the controller mode to AHCI and do a new OS install on the SSD."
If the SSD is the boot drive, it has no effect on how you need to RAID the Spinpoints. RAID0 - bigger and faster. RAID1 - if one drive fails, you keep going. Same write speed as one disk, potentially faster reads.
Help us narrow it down so someone doesn't have to write a small book, or point you to one!
