Problem installing xp..

Guest

Hello,
I'm trying to install Windows XP on two SATA drives(raid 0)and of course it
doesn't recognize the hard drives... So I got my motherboard support cd (I'm
using an ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe) and looked in the files... Extracted what it
told me to (/Drivers/Chipset/WinXP_2k/driver_disk, I also tried the Silicon
Image RAID one in /Drivers/Sil3114), used the applicatoin to do it.. So went
and pressed F6 at Windows installation and a minute later it came to:
Setup could not determine the type of one or more mass storage devices
installed in your system, or you have chosen to manually specify an adapter.
Currently, Setup will load support for the following mass storage devices:
None.

Then down below it says: To specify additional SCSI adapters, CD-ROM DRIVES,
or special disk controllers for use with Windows, including those for which
you have a device support disk from a mass storage device manufactuerer,
press S...
So I press S, it askes me to put the disk in drive A (my floppy) so I put it
in, press enter.. Tells me to please wait, then it goes back to the screen
telling me it couldn't determine the mass storage devices again... Anyone
know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

Refer to your Asus motherboard's User's Guide to learn how
to properly enable SATA drive support in your BIOS settings.
