Proliant 3000 & Boot Controller Order

How do I force a Proliant 3000 server (Windows 2000 server) to boot from the SCSI array controller instead of from the external array controller (attached to the server via a PCI SCSI card)?
At POST, I hit F10 to go to the system BIOS. But I could not find the option where I could tell the system to boot from the SCSI array controller ONLY, NOT from the added PCI SCSI card.
I need to tell the system to use the SCSI array controller as the ONLY device to boot from (or at least, to boot from it FIRST)
Thank you very much for your anticipated help

Hello Pierre

1) hit F10 when prompted
2) select system configuration
3) select configure hardware
4) select review or modify settings
5) select view or edit details
6) search for your controller and make your
changes
7) hit F10
8) select save and exit
9) select save the configuration and restart

That should do.

Thanks for your help. However, the problem has not been solved after doing what you suggested (which I have tried before I sent the request for help).
My Smart Array is my first boot device device and the PCI Adaptec SCSI card the server is trying to use has a boot SCSI ID set to 2. What I would like to do is tell the system that the PCI SCSI card to which the array is attached should NOT be used as a boot device at all.
Thanks,
