I'm not sure that I understand your Question???? The Soyo Dragon Ultra has native ATA 133 support. Are you refering to RAID setup/support???

If you want to setup raid, you need at least two drives. They should be of the same size and buffer; ideally the same mgf. In addition when you setup raid, all existing data on the drives is destroyed. You cannot take a drive with an os or data and make it into part of a raid array without loosing everything on the drive that is there now.

Post back if you want instructions on how to setup raid.

BTW I am not a fan of onboard ide raid. The onboard type of raid controller is a dumbed down version of the controller used on a real raid card.

My thinking is if you want raid, buy a real raid card.
