Here is what you need to do:

Boot to CTRL-M configuration utility for PERC 4e/Di.
Configure, View/Add ... all disks should show as READY.
Space Bar to select each drive (they will begin to blink), after all are selected, hit Enter (they will stop blinking), F10 to configure, Space Bar to select Span, F10 to configure, select your RAID 5, then Accept, leaving all other settings at defaults.  Answer Yes to Save the configuration when prompted on exiting to Main menu.
In Main menu, to to Initialize, Space Bar to select Logical Disk 0, F10 to initialize.

Where are you running into problems?
If the drives do not show as READY, you will need to go to Configure, Clear Config first.
