The OS is not on the CD.....
Smart CD gives os option so that install all the drives accordingly...
any other question feel free ...

The OS is not delivered with the Hardware. Depends may be you have bought the server from a vendor and probably the person who ordered may or may not have ordered the OS. OS is different and hardware is different.

The server comes with smart start and compnonet mangement CD. You have to configure your hardware first and then install the OS on that.

Yes with everything has to be done with the smart start cd. There is arrary configuration utility (ACU).This will automatically come once you follow the smart start cd steps..
so select the drives create logical drive put them as raid 0+1 which is also knows as Mirror. rest if you have any drives you can config them as Raid 5(minimum 3 drives needed ).
once you have done with your arrary configuration then your server will reboot copy some files and then it will prompt you to put in the OS cd and then you install the win2k3 or what ever.
