Itanium IA64 with good linux server?

Need to know what is a good free IA64 linux server distro?
I was looking at taroon but it is old, can I then upgrade the rpms as there is a hole bunch of new ones on fedora IA64.

Another thing is I finally found the rpms for RH ent 3.0 for IA64 but dont know how to install from a list of rpm's.

Please help as I scored a sweet itanium2 system on ebay and want to host websites and email servers.
