when booting up go to ROM monitor (depending on model you press break/escape/space while the memory test as far as i remember)


then type "boot cdrom"

How old is the server? If you can tell the model, that would help. A lot of the older ones, you press F1 or F5 to get into the management screen, and then have it boot from cdrom. Newer ones are much easier, but it would help us if you tell us what you are working with.
