I have a Dell Poweredge 2950 with 6 1TB SATA drives.  It has a perc 5/i Raid controller.  I configured RAID-50 with the 6 drives and initialized them.  

When I go to install Server 2008, however, the volume is broken out into a 2048MB partition, and a 1676MB partition.  How come this happened, is there a disk size limitation I have reached?  This is my first foray into RAID 50....
