Which software do I need?

Hello there, I hope someone can help me.

I have a proliant 800 with a broken SCSI HD. I have replaced the HD, but need to find the appropriate software in order to build the system from scratch. In particular I need the BIOS configuration software, which I believe, in the original configuration, is actually hosted on a small partition on the HD. (At least, thats how the system used to be configured). This old server has literally given us YEARS of trouble free service, so we can't complain when the original HD goes down! We installed it in 1997 and it's been chugging away every since. So, if anyone can point me to the right software, and suggest the right order to do things, I would be most grateful. I have looked at the list of software, but, to be honest, the list of software packages is bewildering. Also, the web site does not recognise my serial number.
