Windows 2003 Server, Active Partition

I dropped a couple new 1 TB SATA drives on the server, set them up w/ RAID 1 using the BIOS, and formatted them using Disk Management.  I also marked them as "Active" which I now believe may have been a mistake.  (See image.)  If it is a mistake, how do I remove the "Active" status?  Delete the partition and rebuild it?

Yes there is a Mistake

you Active partition that must be active is (c) that contain the System
so
1- Reactivate the Partition C: ----> Rclick on C: then choose ----> mark as active . ( when you do that the new volume will deactivated automaticlly ) .

2- If you want to delete the new partition or fromat it ( Rclick on the partition then choose ----> delete )
