I have 3 disk drives that I am installing into an hp proliant smart array 5i controller.  I am not concerned about the data on the disks.  However I am trying to recover data from a remote media server.  However it sees the disks on the smart controller as disk1.  I need these hard disks to be disk0.  Is there a way I can change this in the raid configuration or the compaq setup utility.  I have searched everywhere to no avail.  Any ideas?

I tried this already but it creates logical disk #1.  How do I get it to create logical disk #0?

Logical Disk 1 doesn't mean that it's RAID 1.  When you create an array you'll need to chose RAID 0.  It will then create a volume which is the actual partition tha the system will use.

If you have any issues let me know I have a few of these in my lab so I can give you step by step if you run into issues.
