GRUB Configuration for Compaq Proliant DL380 (G1)
I have a Compaq Proliant DL380 (1st generation). It has four SCSI disks connected by the integrated RAID controller. I have three disks arranged in a RAID 5 configuration as one logical disk, with the fourth disk used as an online spare.

I am trying to install Gentoo Linux 2007.0 on it. The Gentoo install CD seems to pick up the hardware fine. The logical disk shows up as /dev/ida/c0d0.

How do I refer to this device in grub-speak? I have tried root(hd0,0) (sd0,0), (c0d0,0), and many other things to no avail. I also tried using tab completion for root( and setup( ... no luck there either.

What would I call /dev/ida/c0d0 in the grub.conf file?

If I compare the device /dev/ida/c0d0 with a CCISS device then this is Controller first with disk 1 which is equivalent to hd0, but as you say its just what the OS see ..I think the partition thingi is missing here.

Proliant Dl380 g1
Goto hp and get smartstart 5.5 . This is a iso image and it is the ONLY way to configure a Compaq system. It is free or you can have it shipped to ya.
