Re: i have problem with install debian etch kernel 2.6 in dl380g7

You're trying to install an obsolete distribution that is no longer supported, to the latest-model hardware. This might not be a successful combination.

The Debian Project's support for "etch" ended on 2010-02-15. The current release is "squeeze": it was released very recently, on 2011-02-06. The previous release was "lenny": it's still supported and receiving updates.

The message indicates the kernel could not even identify the SATA controller that provides access to the CD/DVD drive.

If you really must install Debian "etch", you'll probably need the updated "etch-and-a-half" installation CDs to support your new hardware. "Etch-and-a-half" is just Etch with an updated kernel and installer to support more modern hardware. Please see this page for more information:

I concur with Matti, though you might also try an external USB optical drive with the media you already have...

Make sure the bnx2-09-4.0.5.fw file is in /lib/firmware directory. Add it there if necessary.
