Deploy Linux using Smartstart 7.6 on BL460c Servers

Hello Gurus,
I tried to install Linux Red Hat ES 4 update 3 on Blade server
I connect through ILO and mounted a virtual CD ROM device.
I can boot my server from Smartstart CD and when I to choose O.S I don't have RED HAT choice!!!
Can somebody explain if he encounter the same problem? I find on Smartstart support that it can support RedHat installation
So what do you think?

For Linux SmartStart does not provide an Assisted Install Path. Basically that is because SS would have had to duplicate the Anaconda installer, and that wasn't a very big help to the user. Boot SmartStart, use it to do hardware setup such as RAID, and then boot the first Linux install disk and run through Anaconda.
