More info would be helpful... Which SCSI raid controller are you using? If it's an adaptec, check out their support section. They have documents on how to configure their adapters and the array which should explain a lot.

most of the time your mobo bios will have an option to boot from SCSI. if it doesn't then there may be other things such as choosing an exact hard drive to boot from. You should also look into the BIOS in your SCSI card, Maybe there is a setting to make your raid the bootable device.

Right on poursoul, there is a setting for Adaptec controllers. When the SCSI BIOS comes up you hit CTRL+A I believe and go into the "SCSI Select" utility. It's in there that you configure and build your array as well as make it bootable. There may be more to it but that's as far into the dox as I got before I decided to not bother with striping... To much money as I'd have to dump my current controller as well as lose one of my drives space-wise. But, it'd be a screamer.
