Question RAID Location on SUSE Enterprise Linux

So I am very new to Linux and have just ordered a sever from Dell that is preconfigured with SUSE Linux Enterprise edition. The system is supposed to have a RAID 5 system (3 500 GB drives configured as a 1TB disk) but I can not access it anywhere. I had expected the RAID to just be set up as the main boot disk and to be accessible from /home but there are only a few GB there. Does anyone have some pointers as to whether the RAID system needs to be mounted on how this is done? Thanks

There may be a normal /boot partition rather than a raid partition for raid5.

Look at your /etc/fstab file. This contains the devices and mount points for the mount command at boot time.

Also look at the output of:
sudo /sbin/fdisk -l

This will print out all of the partitions on you system, even if they aren't mounted.
If this is a server that you ordered, it could be that the lion's share is mounted on /srv.
