RAID 0+1 Windows XP install problem

I am installing a new system on an ASUS A8N-E mobo using 4 WD Sata drives, 2 DVD burners and a 8-in-1 floppy drive (3.5" and several several removable drives for microdrive, SD card, etc.).

I have connected the 4 HDD to the dedicated RAID controllers on the mobo and connected to two DVD drives to the primary IDC controller in a master slave configuration.

I define the RAID in the BIOS as 0+1 and am able to install windows but my RAID shows up as drive G:, DVDs show up as E: and F:, Floppy as A: and the removable drives as C:

This is totally pissing me off and causing system problems. For some reason Windows keeps generating a second RAID defined as C: which instantly causes everything to hang and crash.

How do if Fix this?

Please help as you seem to have had this problem.

Perhaps it will set up your RAID array as C: if you laeve the 8 in 1 floppy drive unconnected during the install, then hook it up later?

I have no idea about the other stuff though :/

Hope that helps at all?
