    Tell us a little more, what are your harddrive vendor? WD, Seagate, Maxtor?

    When you bought those drives, the driver should come with them. If not, you should have to search them on vendor website and download.

    Right an update i have managed to get it installed but to help anyone in the same situation out i used the file iata51_enu.exe with the following switches "iata51_enu.exe -a -a -p c:\raid1" this extracts the correct files to the raid1 directory on the root drive all you need to do then is copy the files in that directory onto a floppy and press F6 at the prompt during the windows xp cd install use the driver with the FR ending on it and all goes smoothly from then i now have my install done and Raid0 running

    thanks or your response Punky much appreciated
