Linux install on RX4640 - cant boot from the dvd.

Trying to install linux on RX4640. I have the Linux enablement kit, followed the instructions, and I get to a point where it tells me to instert my linux cd and reboot the server. It reboots, I get to efi, choose the dvd, but it will not boot. I know the drive works because I can boot the ODE CD, boot the hpux dvds with no problems. Do I *HAVE* to use Debian? Does it NEED to be on DVD? I also tried to install redhat by just booting off the cd, but can't get it to boot. This is the error message

Loading.: Internal Bootable DVD
Load of Internal Bootable DVD failed: Not Found

Whats am I missing here? This box is licensed for lunix.

What is now exactly the solution for this problem?
I am in the same situation with a Integrity rx2600 and RHEL 4.

thanks a lot

I forgot this was left open, but I am still having the problem. I'm going to try today and will post if I get any results.

RedHat Support only means the problem is the Enablement Kit and I should try to boot with a LS-120 diskette.
But I don't tkink that's a usable solution.

You have to use a RedHat CD/DVD which is explicity labeled for Itanium.
