Boot Controller problem, new Proliant ML 350 G4p

Ok, first post, here goes... Installing new G4p server. It has two internal SCSI controllers, 1 for Raid1/0 while the other is for Raid 5. When I boot off the HP SmartStart CDROM, ver 7.30, the setup software will only select the Raid5 logical disk for the win2k3 server setup and I am unable to option to the raid1/0 logical disk for an installation there instead. Any ideas?

Michael, I'm a bit confused...two controllers??.. anyway smartstart will use the logical drive with the lowest id for the OS installation. Since this is new and to be on the safe side...delete everything and create just one R 1/0 and install OS. You'll create your RAID5 with array configuration utility later, when the OS is up and running.
