Anyone know of (preferably free) tool for RAID configuration tool for Dell PowerEdge 2950 III servers? Need to do RAID 1 and RAID 5?

I'll just be doing this on W2003 Standard R2.

I'm not sure what your problem is here, because the build and control function is built into the BIOS, and Dell ships a utility with the computer that does pretty much everything that you could want on the subject. My 2950 runs two drives in RAID 1 for the boot, and 3 drives in RAID 5 for my data. Now, if you are trying to do software RAID instead of hardware RAID, you are both giving up performance and creating unnecessary complications. The two RAID sets show up as virtual drives at boot. Good luck with that MCSE.
