In which case, I think you're out of luck.  There are no Datacenter specific drivers for the Intel P45 chipset - if the Server 2008 drivers off the intel site don't work then I don't think your going to find them anywhere else.

Why would you want to run Datacenter on a P5Q-E anyway?

Marvell 61xx Raid Driver V1.2.0.60 for Windows 32/64XP,32/64 Vista
Marvell 88SE6111 SATA Controller Driver V1.2.0.57 for Windows XP/Vista & 64bit XP/Vista

I'm slightly confused.  You say you have RAID 5 which you want to install onto - according to the ASUS site the only RAID controller on the P5Q-E is the Intel ICH10.  The ICH10 is natively supported by Server 2008 Std and Ent - not sure about Datacenter.

I still think you'd be better of using Enterprise.  Datacenter offers you nothing over Enterprise.

no luck with Enterprise and the intel drivers

what i have done:
used ctrl + I at startup to configure a raid 5 array
booted up to the windows 2008 64 bit Enterprise cd
it then asks me to load drivers i select the drivers from the file that you had me download then select next I then get a message saying that the device driver could not be installed

Are you using the floppy driver disk - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2101&DwnldID=17270&strOSs=170&OSFullName=Windows%20Server*%202008&lang=eng

Are you sure the drives aren't there anyway?  Vista/Server 2008 has the driver built-in, so you should be able to see them without loading additional drivers.  

If you have a Vista DVD available it might be worth trying that without loading any drivers.

If its not showing up after that then you must have a hardware / BIOS configuration problem.

same problem with the vista disk
i went in the bios and changed the SATA type to IDE and the 3 drives show up however after installing the OS it just installed it to one disk and the other 2 disk's show up as new disks

-DJL-Commented:
Yeah - selecting IDE disables the RAID controller.  It should be set to RAID if you want to use a RAID  array.

I would enable RAID again, and try recreating the RAID 5 array.
