Default DRIVE MIRRORING and Promise RAID

My main rig (PzychoB!tch II) has a Gigabyte GA-7VAXP Ultra Motherboard which as a Promise PDC20276 ATA 133 RAID controller.

Some resent upgrades has allowed my to get 2x matching Seagate 320 Gb Hard Drives and I would like to see about putting my onboard Promise PDC20276 ATA 133 RAID controller to work so I can mirror these 2 drives.
These drives are just going to be used for DATA. I got my OS (Windows XP Pro) running from a seperate drive.

At the end of the day, I would like to have a redundancy system where if one drive fails, the other one continues on.

Any hints, tips and things to look out for when setting this up.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)
Mobile Phone : Samsung Galaxy 5 Note SM-N920IConsole : Play Station 4
