Dunno exactly if you can get it back. Depends on the state of the raid and type. Is it hardware raid?

I'd start with a few live cds to see what they can see. Start with opensuse as it has some of the best raid support. Try a live debian and openindiana also, might as well try a fedora while you are at it.

If they fail then you need to install a single drive that you can then reload 2003 and add in array support to see what is what.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
