Proliant 800 Windows 2000 upgrade - what drivers needed?

I'm finally upgrading from NT 4.0 to Win2k server on our Proliant 800 machine this weekend. Does anyone know what driver updates I will need? I checked out the software downloads area for the Proliant 800, but it doesn't simply specify what I really need for the Win2k upgrade, like the Dell site or IBM site does.

Hello David,
I would definitely update the system bios then the firmware of the Smart Array controller if you have any. Before applying any software updates please make sure you have backed up your data. You need to update the support pack which should automatically update the drivers for the components you have in your system assuming you dont have any third party hardware.

Hello David,
You would need to run the Primer Utility as well which can be downloaded from the following link:
