Proliant ML310 with Novell SBS6

I have attempted on 5 occasions now to migrate our HP Netserver 50 running Novell SBS5 to our new ML310 running SBS6. Each time the result has been the same. At some point (different points each time)in the migration the target server apparently "loses connection" and blows out the drive array necessitating a complete reconfiguration and install. I am using 4 40 gig drives configured as Raid 0+1. On every attempt I have installed all pertinent Novell and Compaq patches prior to the migration and followed migration instructions to the letter. On the Novell SBS forum they are advising me against using the Raid array and to use Novell's mirroring instead. I am frankly at my wit's end. I am wondering if there are any known issues using the built in IDE raid array with Novell 6. I am also wondering how to proceed with some confidence that what happened during the migration won't happen to a running server. Any/all help is appreciated.

Regards,
Dick Walter
