Cannot see my RAID 5 volume in Server 2003?

I have 6 disks I built Server 2003 R2 x64

2 x 36gb for OS on array A as RAID 1
4 x 146 gb for Data on array B as RAID 5

now that the OS is installed I can see my RAID 1 array as C drive - makes sense so far

I cannot see the data portion?

Disk Management shows the volume as unallocated basic disk?

How to I set it up so I can use this large volume for storing apps and data?

That's how it should start out.

Now just right click on the unallocated disk and choose "create partition".  Make it a primary partition with that full size or whatever you want, and assign it a drive letter.

Leave it a basic disk btw.

Can I make it the primary even though my OS is on C?

You are so right and I am too scared to try stuff on my own.

Thanks so much for your help.

Yes...you can make it primary...just don't set it as the "active partition"....Your C drive should be the active (boot) partition.
