Installing Red hat 2.1 on G5 dl380

I want to install linux red hat 2.1 on G5 DL 380. Is it possible ?

I have next error: a can`t see SAS hard.
Where i can find drivers for it ?
I try to install from disk "Linux Red Hat 2.1 update 6"
I try to use smart start too, but it doesn`t have support linux.

Shalom,

Red Hat 2.1 lacks the drivers to detect the hardware of this server.

It simply can not be used on it.

RH 3 update 6 is the earliest release I feel confident will work with it.

RH 2.1 is out of support if I am correct and its not likely drivers will be developed. See HP if they decided to produce add in drivers and procedures. Thats a response center call.
