Found what seemed to be it -
but the one for the DL580 GL5 was from '09. I clicked the link at the top
of the list, found mine, clicked that, and was offered a choice of OS's,
including CentOS, but that had some accelerator. At the bottom of the
offered OS's, they say "cross-os - BIOS, etc". I follow that... and *all*
I get is a WinDoze .exe. Could I use one of the burnable DVDs to boot from
then run this, having copied onto the h/d on the server?
