PL 1500 CFG file

I've been trying to load W2000 on an old PL1500 but it wants a .cfg file that it cannot seem to find. The biggest problem is I can't seem to create the system partition. I'm trying to create the system partition using the SCU from diskettes created via sp19619 but it keeps asking for a cfg file called !CPQ42A0.CFG. I have no idea what it is or where to find it myself. Can anyone help?

Re: PL 1500 CFG file

First of all: have you got a smartstart CD? if yes, use it to install your system utility partition.
if not:
I'd try starting off with downloading the Array controller driver for your server.
Then push F6 at the beginning of your windows 2000 installation and load that driver (off a floppy). Leave some space for the utility partition...
