Default Raid 0 configuration question

hello, i have a dell dimension 9100 PC with windows XP media center.

I currently have a 160GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) , and i have found that i filled it up quite fast.

if i want to install another hard drive, and configure the pair of drives for RAID 0, is it neccessary for both drives to be identical? or do they just have to be the same capacity? or can i simply install any other HDD and configure the two for RAID 0?

i ask this because i am considering purchasing a 100 gig SATA hard drive (7200RPM) to add to my computers capacity.

also, how exactly do i configure the two drives for RAID 0?

thanks in advance.
