from xp raid 0 to dual boot xp /linux
I currently have a windows xp raid 0 set up with 2 36 gig WD HD. I am wanting to set up a dual boot with xp (keeps the wife happy) and Linux on separate drives. I formatted the drives (well I thought I did) and now it seems the format didn't take. I get the blue windows screen on Xp install: Windows can't see a hard drive, install one or a boot floppy/cd, something like that. Basically telling me that my drives are not there (checked all contacts) so my format didn't take. I have farted around with this for a couple of days and finally I just put Ubuntu on top and it works fine. Wife is not happy though (she doesn't like change) so I need to dual boot. I have searched the forums here and haven't seen anything quite like this, can you all please help me out here.
Thanks for the help
