Configuring Disk mirroring DL580 G3

I wonder if anyone can help me, I have a DL580 G3 server, installed are 2 x 146GB disks and 2 x 73GB disks.

I am trying to set it up so the two 146GB disks are mirrored and the two 73GB are available for storage, I have used the disk array configuration utility, selected Raid 1+0 but when I have installed Windows 2003 can only see one hard drive - one of the 146GB drives, I cannot see the other two 73GB drive, I am very new to this, could someone point me in the right direction, as stated above, I want to install Windows 2003 on one of the 146 drives and mirror this to the other 146 drive, but also have access to the other two 73gb drives so I can store back ups etc on them.

I would appreciate any help.
