Hey everyone,

Im trying to get Ubuntu 8.04 working on my current system, but I'm stuck at choosing partitions, I've got a raid-0 array of two 320GB drives with 3 partitions, a C: which has WinXP on it, a empty 50GB D: Partition and another E: 500GB partition with some music, games and video's on it. The installation menu shows just two 320GB drives, but no partitions. I would like to install Ubuntu on the second empty partition, but keep my existing data on the other 2 partitions, so i would like it to be a dualboot, but i don't have any idea which option to choose at the installation screen. I can only install Ubuntu by formatting everything. Do i need a floppy with raid-drivers to install Ubuntu just like with windows?
My motherboard is a Gigabyte P35-DS4 (ICHR9)

Help is greatly appreciated, I've been searching for days without any succes.

Thanks in advance!
