Default SATA and Raid drivers

I have just built my computer and everything seems to work correctly. But I have two questions:

1) My SATA drive is the only hard disk, so is it necessary to load the via raid drivers.

2) Reading the instructions for fitting the drive it said to remove the jumper from the back, which I did. Should this have been left on the master setting or does it not matter that it has no jumper attached. The disk works fine and is recognised.

Thanks in advance for any help

RAID is only if you have multiple hard drives, and only if you want to use RAID, you don't need to run RAID with multiple HDs but it can give you either a performance boost or redundancy by backing up your data.

If it works fine without the jumper don't worry about it (I think).
