T5240 and Internal SAS RAID Configuration help

Dear Friends,
I need to configure T5240 with Internal SAS RAID HBA(SG-XPCIESAS-R-INT-Z).. T5240 uses 8 hard disks... From the documents of RAID card I have found that I need to create a jump start server to include three packages SUNWaac, StorMan, SUNWgccruntime if Im using solaris10 5/08...

But Im going to use solaris10 10/08 that included these packages SUNWaac, SUNWgccruntime... But there is no 'StorMan' package....so can I create bootable array with solaris cd itself? I need to avoid network installation... If anyone know please help....

standard accessory for the raid controller is a boot cd with all needed tools to configure the raid. i've used this some weeks ago while having the same problem.
