you will go into the configuration utility on boot up.  go into the array manager and create an array...you will use your spacebar to select your three drives...then you will go down the options for the array.  64K chunks, write cache enabled etc...if this will be your bootable logical drive then you will need the drivers for windows and do the F6 button when setup is working to add the perc drive (might not be applicable).  that should be it.
