Installing Windows 2000 Server on Compaq Proliant ML370 (P17)

Good people,
Please help me, why is it that Windows 2000 Server and Windows NT4 Server are failing to detect hard disks on my Compaq Proliant ML370 Server, yet I am able to install Windows 98, Windows XP on the same. I tried to run Array Configuration Utility, it also reports that 'no configurable disks are available'. So, how come Win98 and WinXP are working. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Boster.

Hi
did you install it from the smart start cd?

did you tried from a windows 2k server CD directly?

DGH asked whether I installed from SmartStart or original CDs. I installed Windows XP and Windows 98 from the original CDs. Windows 2000 Server and Windows NT4 Server are failing to be installed from thier original CDs and SmartStart CD because both do not detect hard disks. Please help.
