Did you experience a power event? Go to BIOS (F2), and make sure that RAID is Enabled. If RAID got turned off (power event, BIOS reset), then it will give you that message. If RAID is already enabled, then you may need to repair your operating system. If something else happened (drive failures, drives removed, etc.), then the array may be completely gone. Call Data Recovery services if it is critical you retreive the data.

you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.
your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

Perhaps there is a IP conflict?
Why not set up DHCP with IP reservations for your servers? I have no idea how big your setup is. We have a few of these servers at my work and have experienced no problems.
Also i believe this server may have 2 network interface cards, make sure you have the IP set to the correct adapter, and dont plug them both in with the same IP address.
How long have you left the server at "applying computer settings" before plulling the network cable?

SOURCE: Poweredge 1800 server
I looked over the spesifications for the poweredge 1800 servers, go ahead, it will work perfectly but there is one problem in the windows XP setup, you will need to insert / load SCSI or SATA drivers for the hard drive With a floppy disk, or if you don't have a floppy drive your going to need to create a custom windows xp setup cd and add the drivers into it so it can start the SCSI or SATA hard drive and finish the install. without the drivers it might not find the hard drive.
Aside from that I don't see any other problems. You should be able to get the drivers, and everything ese from dell site
Actually I looked over the dell downloads, I see only windows 2000 on the list with windows server 2003, and 2008 and linux distributions.
This could be a 2nd problem, drivers might not be avaialble, or work with xp, but we might be able to get it to work.
So two problems, SCSI or SATA drivers in windows xp / windows 2000 setup
2nd problem is in windows xp drivers, you could try windows 2003's drivers and 2000's and see if they work, if not, then we would have to look for drivers ourselfs from the internet.
So xp might cause headache but we might get it working, windows 2000 seems to be supported perfectly.
Let me know how the project goes

I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.
