Default Raid Question

Is it possible to set up a raid configuration on win xp thats on an IDE?

I just got 2 raid hdds from my friend but already have windows installed on my hdd. Thats the reason why i'm asking hehehe. Or do I need to reinstall windows and such? my mobo is the Biostar Tforce 550se.

Oh yea what is more preferable IDE or RAID and why? So i know how to invest in a bigger HDD soon. Don't have to offer too much detail.. just want to know what I should get for later on. Thanks!

IDE is an interface and yes, you can run RAID and you'll have to reinstall Windows.
