DELL poweredge 4400 raid machine with debian/ubuntu.


I am trying to install ubuntu onto the dell machine but i dont' have accompany CD that come alone wih the server (my boss purchase it on ebay lol). Now, linux wouldn't able to detect the precense of hard disk. I know i probably havve to go through the nasty module/kernel compilation process.But i can't even find the source file from dell website.

Can anyone give me some hint on installing debian/ubuntu on such machine?

thx in advance

You can get the full set of 14 CD's for debian from cheapbytes for about $30 or you can download all the iso images and burn them yourself. You will need to boot with the #1 disk to install and load the release.

Hope this helps

the "accompany cd" refering the dell server management cds. I guess i shall post such question on dell forum rather then linux forum. I do have debian and ubuntu cds but the hardware doesn't detect raid is the main problem.

Thx for the advice anyway.
