With all hardware properly installed and drives properly connected to the RAID controller you will want to boot the server.

Watch the boot sequence carefully and you should see something like "Press F5 for RAID Setup" or some similar prompt telling you what key combo to hit to enter the RAID Controller's setup. Do so.

Once in there, configure your RAID and have it synchronize the disks.

How about listing the drives as in sizes and number? What you have listed here you can't raid without loss of space.
