Error when selecting Hard Drive

Alright - here's my computer setup just to start out:
AMD 4400+ 64 Bit Dual Core Processor
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Mobo
2x150 SATA HDD's in RAID 0 (running windows xp)
1x100 SATA HDD (to run Vista on a separate drive)
2 GB Corsiar XMS RAM
NVidia 6800 GS 256mb Video Card

Ok so I bought the 100 GB sata drive for the sole purpose of installing and
testing Vista on it. I burned the 32 Bit version (I thought it would run
more stable) onto the DVD and booted from the disc. When prompted for the
drive to use for the installation, the only drive that was shown available
was indeed the 100 GB drive (as I had not loaded any RAID drivers -- but I
don't need them.)

So I created a partition on the new drive, and formatted the new partition.
Then I hit the "Next" button on the install, and a message towards the bottom
of the UI window stated: "Windows is unable to find a system volume that
meets its criteria for installation."

Does any one have any ideas to get this to work? Thanks.

Check your Bios and make sure your drive shows up as primary. And/or check
your jumpers on your drive. Those running the raid....??? Driver issue?
