You know such servers require management CD in order to configure RAID and then giving option to install operating system from given option.
I tried changing CD with latest management CD of server but in vain.
secondly i use built in mechanism to configure RAID and try to install Fedora by Fedora DVD but server not able to detect any media.
All my setting in BIOS is correct.
Latter i install RHEL 4 with same mechanism without any hurdle.
