Installing Server 2003, No C drive

I have a Dell 2850 Rack mount server. It has 6 SCSI drives, which I have configured with RAID 5 and one Hot Spare.  In the Raid BIOS I have configured one drive to be 50GB (the boot drive), and all the rest to be another drive.

When I install Windows 2003 Server, all goes well, until I login.  The server OS has installed to the F drive, and the C drive is listed as "removable".  I have tried a few ways to rename F to C, but eventually it gets so confused, I have to reinstall.

Has anyone seen this, and how would I go about fixing it?  It's a Dell PERC Raid if that matters.
