Have done that and then enabled the raid controller in the BIOS with IDE
enabled then I found that I could not install from the SATA raid controller
but could from the SATA standard controller once XP installed then had to
load the Asus raid controller software and then I could see the drives on
So seems to work and on start up the raid controller just shows the 2 hard
drives that are connected to it.
Many thanks for your advice, Tim.
