SmartStart Version For 1850R

I have an 1850R & I would like to find the correct version of SmartStart for it please.

It is a 2x600 Mhz Wide Ultra SCSI2 version

It is also my intention to install Windows Server 2003 on it, so any advice/guidelines would be handy.

Thank you for your help

As for Windows Server 2003 - this link seems to suggest 2000 Server at a push is you best bet:

We've found SmartStart 5.4 to work the best. It supports both the 1850 and DL380.

Also, we're running 2003 Ent.Server on about 20 1850r and DL380 and it's working perfectly.

Good Luck.
