It would be helpful to know where you got stuck.

Why 2003?! Any training will be obsolete and a waste of your time.

Which RAID/storage controller do you have?

How many drives? Size? RAID level?

You will need RAID drivers injected into 2003 in order to see the drives. Use nLiteOS.com for this.

Download hard drive version of driver.

www.dell.com/.../DriversDetails

Run self extracting file and extract files to a usb key. Insert USB key on R310 Server. Start install , when it says at the bottom of the install press F6 to load drivers, press F6. Browse to files on USB key, finish install.
