Re: Installation

First Steps:
ensure that all Firmware versions are up to date!
decide if you want to use RAID 5 or 1 (data Protection vs. performance)
try to get at least SmartStart 5.0
create a 5300 SA W"K driver floppy disk
Second:
start the Smartstart process (really easy :-) )
use the manually installation path (gather some experience with the smartstart process)
third:
If W2K Setup Starts press F6 to add additional drivers
If asked for a manufacture driver disk, insert the 5300 SA driver disk (mentioned in step 1)
go thru the setup as usually
