Question Raid Newbie

I am trying to set up raid for my first time. i am using raid 0. just wondering if there is any good documentation out there as to how to do it or if you guys have any good pointers. I am setting it up on 5 disks and putting windows 2000 server on it. Is it just done through windows setup? I dont really have any idea where to start.

i've never set it up but the way setup goes, if u have driver disc, put in 2k disc, boot it up, right at the beginning after you "press any key to boot from CD..." push F6 if you have SCSI/RAID drivers.

what hardware are you using? I hope your using a hardware RAID controller....
Also, if you have 5 disc, you should use raid 5. You loose the capacity of one, but you can loose a drive and keep working...
