Hi, i'm having a bit of trouble finding answers to all these raid0-related questions i've though up, so it would be awesome if someone who knows this stuff explains to me, or redirects me a thread that talks about it.

Im buying this laptop and i'd really love to run a raid0 on it, for the sake of performance boost. There is practically no useful information about setting up raid0 on a laptop, so i'm in a jam.

*Do i need a floppy, or is there some other other way to install the raid drivers?
*I read about some raid controller, but do laptops have that, specifically that one?

I'm only getting the laptop tomorrow, and it's going to be completely empty, so i guess i could try to do a fresh install and give raid0 a try.
Am i supposed to link the 2 hdds together? How?
cheers

Any useful tips are welcome.

Oh snap, I just realized that it shows "1TB (2x500 GB RAID 0) SATA 7200 "

Does that mean that it's ALREADY set up for raid0 and ready for everything, just needs an install?

Yes, from what you quoted it appears that it is already set up for RAID-0.

If the laptop is new why do you want to do another install?
