My RAID controller failed.  If I replace my controller, will the system still boot back up, in theory?  The server has been down for almost 48 hours.  It's not mission critical, but I do need to get it back online pretty quick.  

Assuming the hard disks are intact, will the  the RAID configuration on the hard drives still have the RAID configuration?  

This is a Dell PowerEdge 1850 using Ultra SCSI 320 drives, 10rpm 76GB RAID 1.
