Default RAID Settings

I am getting ready to replace my dead IWill XP333 with a Soyo SY-K7V and would like to set up a RAID Array. I have two 7200RPM 20GB Hard Drives. I have never played with RAID before - I will have each drive as the master on each RAID channel, but what is the best chunk size to use? I have done a little research but have never been able to determine what are the best settings to use for a RAID setup. I don't do any video editing or anything - just general purpose use (documents, spreadsheets, web-surfing) and gaming. Any help or links to info would be appreciated!

I appreciate the links, but I know the basics of RAID. What I want to know is: what is the best stripe size to use in my array?
