You can get into the raid configuration utility (ORCA) during boot up by hitting the F8 key when prompted. It should be intuitive to set up the raid5 array.
Also if you boot from the Smartstart CD you can use ACU.

â ¢ Upon the first system power-up
â ¢ After defaults have been restored
Default configuration settings are sufficient for proper typical server operation, but configuration settings can be modified using RBSU. The system will prompt you for access to RBSU with each power-up.
The auto-configuration process automatically runs when you boot the server for the first time. During the power-up sequence, the system ROM automatically configures the entire system without needing any
intervention. During this process, the ORCA utility, in most cases, automatically configures the array to a default setting based on the number of drives connected to the server.
If the boot drive is not empty or has been written to in the past, ORCA does not
automatically configure the array. You must run ORCA to configure the array settings.
for 3-6 it will configure RAID 5 automatically.
