Default Set up RAID 1 Help

Ok, don't worry I goggled it but didn't get the exact answer I need.

My system's C:drive is for my Windows XP installation and programs. But I want my two other drives in RAID 1 to protect my films and photos.

Heres the mobo and drives I want to set up for RAID 1.

MOBO
Drive x2

How would I set it up?

Thanks, Noga

Did you read the motherboard manual? It should have a step by step guide to setting up RAID in that manual.

Judging by your comment about one drive having XP and you have 2 additional drives, I am taking a guess that you have 3 drives and only want to RAID1 the 2 seagates. So Just follow the manual and use the drivers that are on the CD that came with the motherboard and you should have no problem setting up the RAID 1 array.
