If both drives are connected to the same ribbon cable, make sure one is set to master and the other to slave using the small plastic jumper on the back of the drives.

I suspect the recommended setup is to have each drives on seperate cable, check your documentation. If this is the case and each drives are the only device on the ribbon cable, set to drive to stand alone, which usually for WD drives is to remove to jumper all together, but check the drives to make sure. It should be indicated on the hard drive label.
If the drives are on seperate ribbon cables but there are other devices on it, you have to set the drive to master and the other device to slave (e.g. cdrom, cdrw...)

Once the jumpers are properly set, enter the BIOS setup and make sure both drives are recognized or configured to auto detect on boot.

Once the system sees the drives, then you can run the Raid Controller BIOS setup to configure your array.
