Default Installing Ubunto 9.04 on Raid0 Setup

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction has to how to do this. I have 3 500GB drives that I would like in a raid0 array so that I can maximize storage size. I want this computer to be a file server when I am done, and I don't care about data loss to be honest.

I have tried to find information, but none of the tutorials seem to work. The screen sits at a black screen with a flashing line.

I created three partitions of 460 GB. I used them for Raid. and Then 5 GBs on each drive for swap. I then configured each drive to be apart of the raid device. The install goes through, but the system will not load.

I have a XGX GeForcce 9300 board, Intel Q8200 Processor, 4GB Ram. The board has raid on it, but I am pretty sure that it is fakeraid. I do not have this enabled at all because I wanted to use the linux solution.

Thanks in advance.

I guess what you want is RAID1, not RAID0. RAID0 provides no redundancy or fault tolerance. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID#Standard_levels
