I can't help much with that. Someone suggested to use dosemu for this, with fdisk on a
loopback mounted file - but I didn't try that.

BTW: The IBM ServeRAID CD is a bootable linux image, perhaps you can get some info from this.
Especially the filesystem should be some initrd or similar, not 3 diskette images. And AFAIR
this contains the firmware upgrade.
