Hi,

will try to start...

First Smartstart has 2 functions :

1) helps with the install - guides you nad install then all drivers needed for proper function

2) If you load this CD you have the option to diagnose and configure the server - different tools.

Step by step should be :

1) Insert the Smartstart CD and restart the server
2) By default without doing anything the smartstart should load...
Go to "Maintain Server" -> Create Array.
Then follow the instructions(click on controller , click create array, then click array click create logical drive , choose the HDDs choose RAID Level 5, SAVE and Exit). return to the main Smartstart page , choose "Deploy server", choose the OS you will install - small business, then it will ask you to insert the SMALL BUSINESS SERVER CD (#1). Insert it and follow the instructions.
