I want to install a SA6402 Smrt Array card and disk drives. But I do not
know how to configure the drives. Is there any document that describes the
installation?

You can use ORCA (Option ROM Configuration for Arrays) for the logical volume
configuration. Below is an operation example of ORCA.

    POST boot message for ORCA. Ignore the message or press F1
    key.

    Note:
    If you access the system console with the Reflection terminal emulator, any
    function keys do not work. In this case use ESC key and numeric key. For
    instance, ESC + 1 works as F1.
