Installing HP Proliant ML370 G3 with smart array controller 532

Hello,

I have just purchased a Proliant ML370 G3 with
Smart Array Controller 532 and Windows 2000
Server plus 3 units 36GB SCSI Hot pluggable
drives.

My question: How should I start the installation??

Should I install the Windows 2000 Server OS
first with just 1 hard disk installed,then
install the Smart Array controller with the
other 2 HD and set to Raid 5

OR

Should I install the SAC 532 and all 3 HD
then install the Win 2000 server??

Your suggestions are very much appreciated.

install your controller and HD, boot up your server, insert the SmartStart CD and follow the instructions.
BTW, you cannot do RAID 5 with 2 HD.
There are no bugs, only undocumneted features
