Cool Raid 0 question

I have two 250gb western digitial HD's. I'm planning on setting these up as raid 0. How do i do this without a floppy drive? Can I use a external USB HD or a CD? I only have one optical drive. I'll need to do this before I setup OS. I have the Gigabyte DQ6 MB.

If they are blank drives and you have a OS disc you can use Nlite to intergrate the RAID Driver into the install.

Depending on what motherboard you have, (And if it even has onboard PATA/SATA RAID) You would enter the CMOS and create the array then boot off of OS Disc and format and install like normal.
