What's you mean ? You need to configure the ServeRaid on the boot of the
server. Some time (15 sec) after the server boot you need to enter
i_don_t_remenber_what_key (but it's on the screen) to create the raid
volume using the ServeRaid-Bios (not the server BIOS).

I'm using a IBM X3550 with two SAS disks with ServeRaid and don't have any

Be careful if you raid volume is very big fdisk cannot make the partition.
