Re: Setup First Time

You can install all of these components before you start configuring your server. When done, boot with the Smart start CD you received with this server and follow the on screen steps. This will configure your server, create your raid set and logical drive and if you select the assisted integration method of installation, it will also have you install the operating system with minimal hassles. If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-OK-COMPAQ.
We are here for a good time, not a long time!
