[CentOS] RAID / OS Monitoring tools ?

I just got a new server (my first **real** server).
It's a dell 2900 :
quad core XEON (with a spare slot for a 2nd quad core chip)
8G memory (expandable to 64G)
8 hot swap SATA HD slots onboard
PERC6i RAID controller
I initially setup the system / RAID as follows:
1) booted off the dell setup CD
2) walked through the RAID setup and formatted the drives
3) the setup bombed when it asked for a RHEL install media (I suspect
cause I gave it a CentOS 5 install DVD instead)
4) powered off
5) restarted the box with the CentOS DVD in the drive and installed
The RAID configuration was as I had set it up in the DELL setup cd so
Now I want to be able to monitor the box, specifically with respect to
the RAID drives so I'll know if one has gone bad and the RAID
configuration has failed over to it. Anyone have any suggestions for
tools to use ?
Thanks in advance...
