Installing SUSE 10.0 on Dell Poweredge

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help?
I've recently purchased a Dell Poweredge 2400 server which has the following spec:

2x 833mhz Intel Processors
1x 9.1Gb Hard Disk (which I will install another 2)
No RAID Card installed YET!

When I put the SUSE 9.2 Live CD in the server and boot from there it loads fine and I'm able to explore the basic features Ok, but bear in mind there's no sound card installed.
I've tried to install SUSE 10.0 but I keep getting errors saying unable to load lib etc...
I've got a copy of SUSE 9.1, should I try to install this first then update via the web or can I adjust the installation settings while running setup?

probably your 10.0 cds are corrupted or something, thats the only reason I could think off. you would be better of downloading a latest version 10.1 and directly installing from it, instead of updating after installing 9.2. it could mess up with the upgrade.
