SCSI RAID configuration probably lost

Hello, I need to restart a Dell Precision 670 server that includes a Dell 320 / DC SCSI RAID adapter. The server was shut down for 7 years and the BIOS setup was lost. I have 3 SCI disks configured in RAID5 (it's written on disks), their model is seagate cheetah 10k7, SCSI IDs have not been changed. Is it a good idea to write-protect disks with jumpers until I find the correct BIOS configuration, or can it cause more issues ? If the disks are not write-protected, are there any risks of overwriting the RAID configuration on the disks? The operating system is RHEL 4.x. Thanks. Christophe.
