ML350 Rebuild with Windows 2003

Good Morning - I'm planning to rebuild a Proliant ML350. Windows 2000 Server Standard has been installed for several years, but I want to start with a fresh installation of Windows 2003 Server Standard. Does anyone know which Smart Start I would use? This is a PIII 800 Mhz, 18.2 GB RAID 5, SmartArray 431 Controller, 2 GB of RAM. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Smart start CD 5.5 or any 5.x (not higher)
Memory bring to minimum
SYSTEMS ROM make sure Up to date
Firmware on the array Controller: make it Up to Date
Use Smart start CD only for System Configuration Utility and ACU, next use Manual Install and Direct Install 2003.

Also use erase Utility from SS CD or FD before you start
