There's not much detail in your post.

You say you install redhat or debian and yet then you say the hard drive is not found.

I would try an enterprise grade OS. Red hat or SUSE for instance.
If you don't require a supported version of Red Hat, try CENT OS which is buit from the same source, but is provided 'as is'.

I would imagine that you may need to track down a driver for your RAID controller.

as others has mentioned, most likely u need a driver (RH8 version) for scsi controller used in ML350 G3. check hp website for driver. if hp website does not provide rh8 binary driver floppy image, u then hav to download the driver source, compile & create driver floppy disk.

when driver floppy is ready,type "linux dd" at installation prompt. insert the driver floppy when asked to do so.

another way is remaster the RH8 CD with newer kernel that already has that controller driver.

obviously easiest way is to use newer distribution when possible, hopefully it support yr hardware.
