It does depend a bit on the RAID implementation - some RAID1 arrays do give a speed boost too. RAID0 speeds up transfer rates if you do large sequential transfers. However, the more random the access pattern, the more prevalent the seek time is.

The DFI board uses the nVRAID implementation. There's a good number of guides, especially if you are using 32bit Windows, including AOA's guide. If you're using Vista, then there is a thread here by Trancebear that covers Vista as well! I believe that 64bit Windows XP/2003 is similar to the 32bit version, but I don't have a 64bit platform to test that on.
Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
