How to install Centos 5.2 on HP DL320 G5p using RAID

I know how to install Centos.  However, I don't know how to install Centos using RAID.  I have a new HP DL320 G5p.  I boot off the Centos 5.2 DVD and I'm at the disk partitioning section.  It refers to software RAID, but I think this system has hardware RAID.  How do I configure mirroring?  

I see there are RH drivers on HP's site, but I don't know how to install an rpm *before* I have an OS on the system.  Do I install on one drive and leave the second drive empty, then install the rpm?

I found a document on how to setup the software raid.  How do I use the hardware raid?

I figured it out.  I didn't need to install anything.  The system detected the raid controller.  This is odd, since the last DL320 couldn't see it.
