Default RAID Controller vs BIOS RAID and JBOD Question

RAID has proven to be a pain to setup and god knows why Windows (Pre-WIN7) is still stuck on the Floppy drives... Most of the time I go to setup a RAID config, windows doesn't see the drivers on the floppy... Would it be easier to use a PCI RAID Controller card? And yes, I've seen the controller cards are quite expensive.

And JBOD, as the name suggests; if I were to hook up a bunch of random discs, what are the properties of JBOD? Stripped properties? Is the read/write speed changed with that setup?
