[ubuntu] Ubuntu Server - Noob Question :)

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am new to Ubuntu (desktop) and will never go back to win/mac. Thank you ;) I am also new to Ubuntu Server. I have an oldie-but-goody dual xeon Gateway 9510 server (link to product page) that had Windows 2000 installed. I'd like to install Ubuntu desktop onto the box and just use it as workstation and local file server, but the drives are not recognized during the installation. I suspect it has something to do with the raid card configuration or drivers (?) On the flip-side, I don't seem to have an issue installing Ubuntu Server. Would it be possible to install the desktop GUI + Office on (Hardware)
