I heard you need a floppy drive to load the boot up device, can anyone elaborate more on this? Is there any USB or CD alternative?

You can use the RAID drivers that are installed with Vista. You will need to do one of the following things to get the RAID drivers installed if you choose to go with XP:

1. Use nLite and create a bootable copy of XP with the current drivers imbedded into windows XP bootable cd. Go to the website and read up on it, I hear it's easy but I have never tried it.

2. You will need a floppy drive and make a bootdisk with the RAID drivers on it and when installing XP you press F6 and load the drivers.
