HP Storageworks 1200s - Rapid Launch CD /Rebuild required

Have a HP Storageworks 1200s, and 1 off the disks has failed. This has been replaced, 1 of which was the mirrored C drive. It seems to have damaged the whole "standard" disk configuration i.e. C and D mirrored and 1 lareg RAID 5 setup using the 4 160Gb drives.
Now need to re-build the basic configuration and load the OS (Appliance server 2003) onto the machine.
Please could someone help in defining best steps to achieve this. Everything points to this "Rapid Launch CD" but unable to get an image that will boot and provide functionality to re-build.
Thanks

Thanks for the info. We have tried booting from the RapidLaunch CD and the Quick Restore CD and it just doesnt want to boot. We have also tried to install the new Operating system without joy, we get to setup stage and the NAS box restarts itself. Tested by booting with just one disk in slot one at a time and the new disk we brought is the only one that seems to at least try to do something, all the others says that there is no OS found or it just hangs. Really stuck at this point. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated.
Thanks

Well it is not a HP external drive unfortunatley and budget restrictions mean that we are unable to purchase a genuine HP drive. Is there any other way round this? Thanks in advance.
