I have acquired a Compaq 1600 server, previously working, that runs 2 PIII 600 Mhz cpu's and 6 SCSI drives, although it currently only has 3 - 9.1 Gig drives.  I am trying to reconfigure the array so an operating system can be installed.  Am using Smart Server to do this.  Have tried erasing the system, after 15 hours the system was still not complete with the erasing.; reconfiguring the array and diagnosing the array, all with no luck.  Would appreciate it any help as I have several of these old Compaq's.  Thanks
