How to determin raid 5 drive order?

Specs: Windows Server 2003
Trying to help a friend. There was a fire at his work where two servers were located, Domain and exchange. My friend pulled the drives out of the server without marking them. The servers turn out to be working though a little crispy on the outside. I want to put the drives back but not sure how to determine which drives go to which server. I have eight drives, four for each server setup in a Raid 5. Any idea how to figure out the order?

Slot information is not written to the drive or the controller. Best you can do it plug them all in and see what the controller reports. Hopefully your friend at least kept the drives for each server unmixed or you have no hope of recovery.

Backups recent and tested as good?
