Have you already configured the array?  I've only had to install NT on
Compaqs but before I even start installing the OS I have to configure
the array controller i.e. tell it which spindles should be used for each
of the logical drives, and what raid mode to use for each logical

The Smart Array configuration utility is on the Compaq SmartStart CD -
it's bootable.
