I have an HP ProLiant ML350 G3 that quit working today.  It's setup under Raid 5 and it looks like one of the drives is going or has gone bad.   The error I'm getting is that ntfs.sys is missing or corrupt.  All I really need to do is boot this thing up one more time so I can pull the data off and call it good.  I've tried Ubuntu Live CDs but they can't mount the drives.  I installed Ubuntu on a new IDE hard drive however the BIOS won't allow me to boot off of it.  If you need anymore info just let me know.

You can use Paragon Rescue Kit Pro http://www.paragon-software.com/business/rk-professional/ to boot the server from it and copy out the data.
Then boot the server from Windows 2003 installation CD and perform CHKDSK on system partition (if it is still alive).
Also you can use Parted Magic CD: http://download.cnet.com/Parted-Magic/3000-2094_4-10663999.html to boot from it and try to copy out your data.
