    You need a minimum of two, it's best if they are identical. You need to start with blank drives.

    Without knowing which motherboard you have it's hard to say. Check your motherboard manufacturers site or the documentation for instructions.

    You can also Google "setting up raid 0" to get some general info.

    and the mobo needs to have an onboard raid controller (?obvious?)
    OR you need to purchase a PCI-e controller
