Yes, you can use 1 disk, that will be a raid 0.

Also, remember that you will need a floppy diskette in order to load the controller drivers into windows!!

A RAID 0 (also known as a stripe set or striped volume) splits data evenly across two or more disks (striped) with no parity information for redundancy. It is important to note that RAID 0 was not one of the original RAID levels and provides zero data redundancy. RAID 0 is normally used to increase performance, although it can also be used as a way to create a small number of large virtual disks out of a large number of small physical ones.

A RAID 0 can be created with disks of differing sizes, but the storage space added to the array by each disk is limited to the size of the smallest disk. For example, if a 120 GB disk is striped together with a 100 GB disk, the size of the array will be...

You do not need a floopy for the OS install.

Boot to the SmartStart CD and install Windows 2003 from there. The SmartStart CD installs all the drivers you need.

With one drive you cannot do any RAID.
