Not recongnizing SW4200 Enclosure off Smart Array 5300

My new ML570 is not recognizing the add-on Smart Array 5300 as the boot controller. The only disks arw 100GB in a Raid 5 + on-line spare hanging off the Smart Array 5300 in a StorageWorks 4200 enclosure. It will boot to it if I go into the array controller config (F8) and set it as the boot controller. However, within the system configuration utility, it either sets the IDE controller or one of the on-board SCSI controllers to be the boot controller.

This has prevented me from getting the drivers pre-installed to the OS soI can install NT4 correctly. Any ideas? I've tried setting it before the sys config util runs, and then afterwards, but no luck.

Thanks in Advance

Tnanks anyway. Apparently, I need SmartStart 4.81 or better, altho both the server and the Array Controller came w/ 4.80.

4.90 is "in the mail", so I hope to have this resolved soon.

Best of luck.
