So, RAID 0 is probably not what you want. You may want RAID 1:

ASUS wrote a very good manual with step-by-step instructions on creating mirror RAID 1 set with saving existing hard drive contents. Look at "5.4 Promise RAID configurations" in [url]http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/P4C800E-DX/e1347b_p4c800-e_deluxe.pdf[/url]
