With the SmartStart CD, you would choose the array configuration utility and set the drive up from there.  Once in the config utility, you need to first create the disk array. This creates the grouping of the physical disks into one big physical drive.  Then, you will want to create 2 logical drives, one for your 80GB C: partition, and then the rest of the space for your data partition. You should be good to go at that point.

Is there a reason you are not using RAID 5?

Probable reason they're not using RAID 5 is that it has poor write performance when compared to RAID 10.
