Raid disk, hot spare?

I have 3 hard drives in this new server.  The server is not supported by a smart start cd so I have to set the thing up manually.   I am now setting up the raid and hot spare.  But im not familiar with the process.   I am currently in a create new array menu that I got to by hitting f8 during boot up.   So my first disk I went ahead and installed windows and partitioned the rest of the drive to use as file sharing.   Now I am trying to set up the raid.  Do I make the first 2 drives part of the raid disk and make the third one the hot spare?  or all three in the array and the last one also hot spare?
