Could it be something with the MBR?  Isn't there a way to use the win cd to
rebuild that?

try booting it with just 1 of the mirrored pair in the server, if that
fails, try the other one

I tried telling it to read config from disk and it looks like it works, but
then when it boots up I get a disk read error.

you should be able to tell it to "read config from disk"
 
 
there is a known issue on perc 3's (newer high end ones)  and a few other
models that take multiple drives offline at random underload and there is a
new firmware for it

I had a raid card go bad in a server.  I replaced it with another and now I
can't get it to see the pervious drive configs.  How can I reconfigure this
card to see the old drive configuration?
