Software RAID + Windows XP + IDE Drives

I have 2 drives (11G and 15GB) . If i wanted to convert them into 1 (as seen by Windows) can this be done via software RAID of Windows XP. Do I need RAID hardware for software RAID provided by Windows XP. Would such a setup be possible if OS was already installed on one of the drives. If possible can such a change be done without reformatting?

If not RAID is there another way of making 2 drives acting as 1.

Yes you can do that, go to storage manager, convert Basic Disk to Dynamic Disk, Assign single drive letter and extend the volume.
Remeber converting Basic to Dynamic process is not reversable.
