Honestly if you have 4 or more drives, skip striping entirely and go for a RAID 5 setup. There are ways to set up RAID 5 withing XP if your controller doesn't support it directly, and believe me if you looses a drive you will be very happy you had redundancy. Lessee that's basically 4 X 250GB or roughly a Terrabyte? That's a lot of data to loose in one shot.
