Exclamation Is it possible to dual boot WinXP FC2 on RAID0?

Hi everyone,

I did some major hardware upgrades in the last couple of weeks and today i received my second SATA Raptor 36GB with RAID0 in mind.

My previous system had a dual boot setup with WinXP SP1 and Fedora Core 2 on a single EIDE drive but i am not sure whether i can reproduce that on a SATA RAID0 set.

My question is:
Can a SATA RAID0 be dual boot and how?

if the answer is no to the above question and i proceed with Windows installation on the RAID set:
Can i install FC2 on the EIDE drive in order to dual boot? How should i go about the task?

ASUS A7N8X - E DELUXE board rev. 1.01 BIOS ver 1009
Thermaltake Silent Boost 360W PSU
Corsair 2 X CMX512 PC3200LX
AMD AthlonXP 3000+ FSB 400 L2512kb
ASUS Radeon 9600XT
Creative Audigy Player!
2 X Western Digital SATA Raptor 36GB
Western Digital EIDE Caviar SE 40GB
LiteON SOHC-5232K Combo EIDE

Many thanks,
