RAID 0 with dule boot? or just a WD raptor


ok so i have fedora core 1 on a 2.6 ghz p4c overclocked to 3.25 ghz on a ASUS P4P800 mobo. i have one hitachi SATA 80 gb 7200 rpm and i want to get another so i can RAID 0 them. my problem is that i have a dule boot with win xp (which i never use becasue it sucks, but i would like to use it for half life 2 and doom 3) so i know how to set up RAID in windows but i dont know if it is possible to have a dule boot and have RAID 0 in just windows or in both OS's. it seems to me if it is possible i would have to partion the hd's into like 20 partions and i dont really want to do that. so if someone wants to save me and yourself time in answering this, you can tell me to just get a WD raptor 10,000 rpm. ok thanks.

I don't believe it's possible, because to use software RAID in WindowsXP, Windows has to convert the disk to "Dynamic Disk", and Linux will not be able to use it anymore. I'd get a raptor.
