Proliant ML350 G1 with smart array 221 controller

Hello,

I'm trying to install w2k3 server on a Compaq Proliant ML350 G1 with a smart array 221 controller.
My problem is that there aren't any drivers that work with the setup of w2k3 server. During setup I get the message that there are no hard drives.
During startup I get a message to run the arrar configuration utility, but when I do this I recieve an error message that there isn't found any drives.
I tried about 30 different drivers that I downloaded from hp.com en compaq.com site
and put them on a floppy.
Nothing will work.
Who can and wants to help me??

With kind regards,

Stephan

Thanks for replying so quickly, but on the smartstart cd I haven't found the specified folder and/or the specified batch file.
