You don't actually install SmartStart. You boot from the SmartSmart CD and then based on the menu selections you make, it will configure RAID and install the appropriate drivers to prep the system for the OS of your choice. After this, it will initiate the installation of the OS.
Since your server is a G4, the CDs you have are probably very out of date. I would recommend downloading the latest SmartStart from hp.com before proceeding.
If you already have an OS on your DL380 and are trying to update the drivers you are looking for the Proliant Support Pack, not SmartStart. This can also be downloaded from hp.com - the exact directions for installation vary by OS but are included with the download.
If you are booting the server from a Windows installation disk and it is unable to detect the hard drive, this typically means the following things. You need to provide the driver for the RAID controller of the server (this can vary, depending on the version of the ML370 e.g. G4/G5) If it still cannot detect the hard drive after providing the driver for the RAID controller or if there is not a driver available for NT4, it may not support the controller. In this case you can remove the RAID set by entering the RAID setup (could be LSI or adaptec). NOTE THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE DISKS THAT ARE A PART OF THIS RAID SET.
