Installation of an operating system on a server

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
I have just configured a dell poweredge 2850 server with a raid 5 setup, it has a perc4e/di raid controller. I wish to install win2k3 operating system and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if drivers were required for this setup and if so do you load them before or after installation of the operating system.
What drivers would you recommend as I have purchased this server second hand with no disks, I would have to download them.
Thankyou in advance.
