RAID Configuration for Dell DL380G5

Is there any configuration document to configure the RAID for Dell R7200XD ? I need to configure 4 group of RAID for different purpose.

RAID 1  2 x 300GB
RAID 10  4 x 300GB
RAID 10  4 x 300GB
RAID 10  4 x 800GB

DL380 from Dell, are you sure?

Yeah, your info is all over the place.  HP makes the "DL380G5", not Dell; Dell has an R720XD, not R7200XD.  Assuming you are actually talking about a Dell PowerEdge R720XD and are using an H710 controller, you need to boot to the CTRL-R utility during POST to configure RAID.  Configure the RAID 1, then install your OS, then configure the other arrays (assuming you want the OS on the RAID 1).

In CTRL-R, highlight the controller (top-left) on the VD MGMT screen, select the disks you want in that particular RAID array (VD), give it a name if you want, leave the other options as default (unless you understand the implications of changing them), then check the Advanced and Initialize boxes, then OK.

Sorry, I'm using Dell R720XD.

Inside the server, does the server have only a physical RAID Controller to control all disks slot ? Do I need to consider which set of disks are managed by which physical controller (or cable) ? It would be great if each set of RAID is managed by a individual physical controller (cable).

This system can be configured with dual controllers, but if you aren't sure if it does, then it probably doesn't - it is not a "standard" configuration.  It is probably also used primarily for failover/redundancy, so they would not be assigned specific drives.  All drives on the backplane are managed by the controller.  You can easily configure the arrays you described with the steps above.
