Smile CentOS 32bit on Poweredge 2850

At the moment, I'm trying to install CentOS 5.6 (the latest 32 bit OS I could find) on a poweredge 2850. ( " CentOS-5.6-i386-bin-1of7.iso" Everything works great except it doesn't see my hard drives... any of them. I moved them to slots 0 and 1. There are two... I'm pretty sure they work fine, as I seem to be able to access them when I just run a livecd (which just runs the OS instead of installing).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
