If you are installing a compaq server, you will probably need the smartstart CD so that you can prepare your raid and install the diagnostic partition first. also get the current rompaqs for your hardware, so as to get current with your BIOS. The rest of the installation should be straitforward, just make sure you have all the necessary drivers for the OS your installing ready on diskette.
