Can I install RAID 5 on XP PROFESSIONAL 64 bit edititon?

I have a K8N-DL asus motherboard. It has the raid controller built in. Can I setup RAID 5 on my computer using 64bit xp pro? If not, can I set up any RAID on the XP platform?

you should be able to, i didnt see when asus has the driver for that board, but they did have one for the a8n which has the same Silicon Image 3114R sata raid controller so the driver should work, heres the link to the xp 64-bit driver
