You read correctly. The raid controller E200 on the ML350 G5 can only do raid0, raid1 and raid10. You need to buy the 128MB BBWC option to be able to do raid5.

Check out the quickspecs for details and the part number you need to buy http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12475_div/12475_div.html
