Installing Debian on a Compaq Proliant 8000 Server


I have a Compaq Proliant 8000 server that I am tring to install Debian Linux version 3.0 r2 "woody" onto using a raid 5 comfiguration.

I have 4 72.8 Gig scsi hard drives @10K rpm ultra 320's installed.

All four are in bay #1 in order from 0,1,2,3.

I have used the Compaq Smart start cd version 5.41

I configure the sytem partition installed the system files, created the raid array (raid 5) and set everything else up correctly to the best of my knowledge.

When i try to install Debian it will not detect any hard drives.

How ever when i try and install redhat version 9 it has no problem detecting the drives and it will install without any problems.

Does anyone have any idea what i might be doing wrong? Or if there are any manuals or documentation out there that would explain the steps one by one in great detail as to how to setup and install debian in this server?

Im desperate for help, ive been struggling on getting this server up and running for about a month and a half now over various problems.

Any help would be greatly appeciated.
