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.

please don't be insulted, but that is rather lazy. especially when by typing "nlite" into Google
