Angry Installing Mandrake 10.1 L 99 99... silicon image 3114 raid

Hi im having some trouble installing mandrake 10.1

i have:

athlon XP3200 processor
corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PRO ram (1Gb)
Radeon 9800Pro Video card
DFI Lanparty NFII Ultra B Motherboard
2 Western Digital Raptor 36 Gb SATA Hard drives on raid-0 (silicon image 3114 controller)

...ok so I installed Mandrake from cd on blank hdds... I dont get any errors there, except my hard drives are recognized as two hard drives instead of 1...(hoping for raid-0). after restart I get the L 99 99 99... error. I have tried reinstalling the bootloader, but no luck. I'd really like to try Linux since its free and supposedly does all of the things i need it to do... but I cant seem to get past all those ugly little 9's any advice would be appreciated! (i would like to have raid working though)
