I would say the instructions you need depend on whether you are trying to use a hardware raid solution (raid controller) or a software raid solution (dynamic disks)...there would definately be a different process for each one.

Did these servers come with SCSI RAID Controllers or just standard SCSI Contollers?  If they are just standard SCSI Controllers then you will need to setup a Software based RAID using Disk Administrator in Windows 2000.  You will first off need to right click on the Disks and convert them to Dynamic Disk.  Once this is rebooted you will be able to setup RAID Levels 0 - 5 (http://www.prepressure.com/techno/raid.htm) which ever you choose.

Well during the installation of Windows 2000 Server you will get an Option to hit the F6 key which will allow you to load third party SCSI Controller Drivers.  These should have come with your server.  If not then I would suggest you download them from the Server Manufactures website.  Once these Drivers are loaded the Windows Install will allow you to setup your drive configuration options.
