IIRC for most of the Compaq RAID controllers you'll need the Smartstart
CD that came with the server.  A couple of the models I think can be
configured in the BIOS, _IF_ everything in the setup partition is there,
but that partition is usually on the array itself...

That's if it's a compaq server -- unfortunately the Compaq controllers
are real finnicky and don't like to work in non-compaq systems.  I've
had to resort to using a minimal NT4 install to configure one before.
