Reinstall 2003 standard w/Perc3/SC

I needed to wipe out the logical drive and start from scratch on a Dell 1500SC with a perc3/SC controller. I went in to the raid utility software and removed the configuration and reconfigured it. Everything look fine at this point. I then rebooted and tried to install Windows server 2003. It ran though several of the the step up to trying to create the partitions. It gave me an error that it could not write, but that this might not be an error if the raid was not installed by the manufacture. After a bunch of reading I believe that I need to use the Dell open manage software to install a driver that loads before windows, but When I try to use the Open Manage CD it tells me that it does not support that device. Suggestions?

You need to use the dell openmanage OS install CD/DVD

You may have download the installer for the wrong version.
The above should do the trick.
Check whether you have the CD/DVD that originally came with the system.
