Installing Windows 2003 on a ProLiant DL380(Generation 1)

How do I setup a ProLiant DL380(G1) with Windows 2003 if SmartStart 5.5 does have Windows 2003 as an option?

start the smart start process with you Smart Start5.5 cd. And select Windows 2000!!!! Follow all the options as you would install 2000. At the point where the server wants the windows 2000 cd. Turn off the server and boot it from you Windows 2003 CD and start your Windows 2003 installation.You have to to this cause the during the smart start the server creats the systempartition. Without it the server hung up when you try to install the windows 2003 from its boot cd.
