    I have Ultra66/hacked-to-FastTrac..

    You have to install the operating system while the system drive is connected to the on-board IDE controller..
    Once you have W98 running, you have to install the windows driver for the FastTrac..

    Then, in your MB BIOS, you have to change your 1st boot device to SCSI.. Also, you have to select a boot drive once it is connected to the FastTrac, from within the FastTrac setup..

    It sounds a little complicated, but is really pretty easy, and works great..

    not following you...you install windows with the drive where? i want to run raid 0 ... can't install it while its on the onboard controller...what about ghosting a good drive with the raid driver from a drive onto the raid drive?
