Linux 7.0 install with 2 scsi disks

I am in the process of installing linux on a compaq proliant server.
I have a disk array and a compaq disk that installed in on of the scsi slots on the compaq server. Since the compaq disk is omn the scsi card on the server and the disk array is on the scsi port in the back of the server. I want to use the disk on the disk array for my /boot, /, and other filesystems. I only want to use the compaq disk as a disk for backups /hold. The problem that i'm experiencing is that linux wants to use the /dev/sda which is the compaq disk as the MBR. I want /dev/sdb which is the disk array to hold it. Therefore after the install linux is not booting. i have to use the bootable floppy to bring the machine up.
Can you pleas help?
