install intel matrix storage manager

RAID 1 (mirror) - Windows 7 - Asus P5B-Plus m/b. IMSM v6.0.0.1017.
One drive failed - Raid array degraded - replaced drive with new one - initially detected as a a non-RAID disk - then via Cntl-I added it to the Raid array - now all seems to OK, but how can I tell that the new drive is really working?
I think the  intel matrix storage manager (IMSM) would tell me that. I have it on the floppy with which I originally installed the o/s, and before the failure an icon would tell me if the disks were out of synch (it sometimes happened after a power failure for example).
Now there is no such icon.
I'm wondering - should I install the IMSM from the floppy?
Is it already there ? If so where might I find it and get it to report?
Is it safe to install it - might it have a bad effect on the RAID array which seems to be working OK, but I want to demonstrate that it is.
Any advice would be welcome, please?
