BSOD trying to install Server 2003 on Acer

I have an old Acer R701 that I'm going to rebuild as a domain controller, but I cannot find any of the original Acer setup discs.
I've got Server 2003 Standard R2 and what I think the are the correct SCSI RAID drivers on a (F6) floppy disk.  I have also tried embedding the drivers in to the OS CD using nLite.
When I boot from the nLite customised CD, the OS installer does not find any HDD's.
When I boot from the normal Server 2k3 disc and use the F6 floppy, I can select the driver to use and then when I press enter it starts doing it's thing and comes up with a BSOD (0x000...7b).
The SCSI RAID controller is an Adaptec AIC-7902W.
I have the HDD's configured as a RAID1.

Any suggestions?

Did you try those drivers you can download from the Acer site?

The only drivers listed for this server are LSI drivers...?
The RAID controller is Adaptec.  I've downloaded the LSI drivers anyway and cannot find a set of F6 drivers to load...

You'll probably have to run the setup program on another PC so the package gets unpacked, and then look for the driver files in the unpacked location.

it was the F6 drivers...
I downloaded new ones from the Adaptec website for a different add-in RAID card (39320D) that used the same 7902W chip.
Thanks again guys
