How to get into RAID bios while booted into Linux

I have a 2950 that I can't reboot right now to enter the RAID BIOS during bootup.  I thought there was a way I could install something in Linux that would allow me to access the RAID settings, but I can't seem to find it.  Anyone know where I can download that program from?

Try to install OpenManage Server Administrator. There are Linux packages, but it may not work on all Linux distros and configurations. It will install both a GUI and CLI commands for talking to the RAID controller. It may require a reboot though before you can use it.

What are you trying to do?

Just trying to see what it says about the drive's status, and try to confirm if it's hot swappable.

All drives in a 2950 are hot-swappable.

Right, I guess I more meant what the RAID situation was for that particular drive.  like if it's already failed and a hot spare picked up and rebuilt already.
