Installing Linux Debian on Proliant ML 310 G3

I have problems installing a Debian Sarge 3.1 on HP proliant Server ML 310 G3.
During installation the process stops because in unable to find hard disk, probably because drivers are missing.
Where can I find drivers or better an installation CD of Debian Sarge including drivers for Proliant ?
If anyone has other suggestions I thank you in advance.

Shalom,

If HP suports the OS, the smartstart cd for the server, should be able to prepare the disk and do an assisted install with the right driver.

Just checked the HP site, the ML310 G3 is not 'supported' at this moment by HP.
I don't have a solution, but I admire the problem

You could of course try to download this ISO intended for other Proliants and see what happens?

Sarge was released June 6th 2005, so if your hardware is not that old you probably will run into trouble with sarge install CD.

I'd try to install the upcoming Debian release aka etch. It's release was targeted for December 2006, but as always there are delays with Debian releases :) Although etch is not the current 'stable' but 'testing' release of Debian, it still seems much more stable than some other distros with their official releases; have some experience with OpenSUSE 10.1 & 10.2 :-/

You can find daily builds of etch installer from
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
but I suggest using the latest release candidate instead (RC1 currently).
