You would need to obtain and install the drivers for your storage controller on your Windows Server 2008 machine. Once the drivers are installed, you are able to proceed and configure the software RAID in a RAID array of your choice.

If yor server supports hardware RAID on its BIOS, you would be a LOT better looking into that instead. Software RAID should only really be used where hardware RAID is not available.

If your BIOS does not support RAID, you can do it from within your 2008 system.

here are instructions for 2003, it's virtually the same thing.
