Setup Question

#1
Hi Everybody,
Here's the deal:
I have a CDRW, DVD, A Hard Drive (WD 80GIG 8mb) and a Zip Drive (internal), my motherboard is a SOYO P4 Ultra Platinum, I've heard that I should not put the Zip on the same IDE of the HD, the motherboard comes with two RAID (wich I dont know what it is :D ) can someone please tell me what setup should I do??!!??
:(
Thanks and Great Night

Here is some reading on RAID to help you with understanding it.

I would put the HDD (master) and the CD-RW (slave) on IDE 0. The Zip (master) and the DVD (slave) on IDE 1.......

This is the way I would start......

:happy:

Since the RAID connectors only take HDDs and you don't want the HDD on the same cable as any of the others (performance reasons) I suggest this setup:

IDE1:
Master: DVD
Slave: ZIP

IDE2:
Master: CD-RW

IDE3:
Master HDD

You may need the RAID controller drivers for XP properly installed and the BIOS set to boot from the RAID controller.
