ML370 G2 Booting from AIT 100

Has anyone actually got this to work?

I've got the following setup:
ML370 G2 (P3 1.4, 1280MB RAM)with a Smart 5i Array Controller and RILOE Card. I have 3 72GB Hot-Swap Drives in a RAID 0+1 array with online spare. There is also an internal CDRW attached to the IDE Controller, and an AIT 100 internal drive (non-hot swap) connected to the on-board SCSI controller on Port A.

I have created a backup tape using ArcServe 2000 with the Disaster Recovery Option, but can't get the machine to boot from the tape. I've tried using the SmartStart CD (5.3) like it says in the tape drive documentation, but it does not seem to put the drive in CD-emulator mode when it asks for the Windows 2000 Server CD. I've also manually put the drive in CD-emulator mode by power cyclinng the server when all 3 LEDs on the Tape Drive are flashing.

I've tried all kinds of BIOS settings as far as boot order goes.

Anyone else have luck with this?
