    All I have are 2 identical standard ATA 133 drives. Can I do raid 0 on that board? If so what IDE ports do I hook each one up to on the board?

    It appears as though only the SATA ports support RAID. Easiest way around that is get some SATA - PATA converters.

    Where can I get one of those SATA - PATA converters? Will I still get better performace with Raid using my 2 standard drives and that converter versus a single drive not using raid?
