What poweredge is it? Some of the cheaper poweredges don't actually have
hardware raid, dell is lying. Search for fakeraid and the poweredge
model. What is the raid setup? What are the raid devices called in the
installer that you made the filesystems on, or did you get that far? If
not, the installer probably doesn't support your raid controller, and
maybe it is fakeraid. On my poweredge with fakeraid, I just used
software raid which the debian installer sets up very neatly.
