That said, you should be able to configure RAID without the smart start CD. When the server starts up you will see a description of the RAID controller. Then you will see a point where you enter the configuration. It will be a key combination like CTRL+A or some other letter depending on the model of the RAID controller. It will enter the RAID controller setup where you can create or modify the RAID arrays or "virtual disks".
Not sure what the questions is, reconfiguring a mirrored raid is a destructive process so all info on the drives will be gone. That said this is managed through the SCSI configuration which you can get into at boot usually by pressing one of the function keys when prompted at boot up.
use this guide, this is fo the embedded sata raid controller that comes standar with the ml150 g5.
Enabling SATA RAID functionality in the BIOS Setup Utility:
1.Boot the server, and then press F10 to enter the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
2.Go to the advanced tab.
3.Enter the IDE configuration or hard disk configuration.
4.Change the ATA/IDE configuration to enhanced or SATA controller 2 enhanced (if not available then use enabled mode).
5.Configure SATA as RAID or configure controller 1 as RAID.
6.F10 to save and exit.
7.Reboot the server.
8.During post f8 will now show up for the embedded SATA set up.
•Creating the RAID volume.
1.Enter the embedded SATA setup by pressing f8 during post.
2.Enter the array configuration utility.
3.Enter create array.
4.Create the raid volume as desired.
5.Save and exit.

When your system boots up you should see an option to access your raid controller if not or if your system doesn't see the controller at all you will have to download the utility software from IBM, but you need to be careful any change you make in the configuration of the disks will delete all data on your drives. This is non-recoverable loss. The utility has help and is fairly easy to understand.
Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.
