John, it is your imagination.

Ingo and all: There are 2 flavors of server:  desktop-server and server...

desktop-server is what you get when you type "server" at the desktop install 
boot: prompt.

server is what you get if you use the server CD:

both flavors have the raid options.

note: I have not seen any "official" definitions/names/whatever concerning the 
names of the two flavors.  But there are 2 flavors, and the names are confusing.
