How configure Proliant G5 to boot from iSCSI?

Hello, can someone indicate me how to config a Proliant DL380 G5 in order that it boots for iSCSI from Network Appliance's NAS?
There is some manual step by step?
Thank you

I was looking at the same and all I have found is:

http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/25467.html

It includes files to be put on a dos disk to upgrade the PXE and iSCSI firmware. From the instructions in that file and from:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00782461/c00782461.pdf?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN


You are suppose to run the insiscsi.bat to install the iSCSI firmware to boot (replacing the PXE firmware). But the tool for me only checks both PXE and iSCSI firmware (my iSCSI firmware was 1.0.0 and it updated it to 1.4.x). When I enter the boot agent of the NIC (CTRL-S at startup time) I see CTRL-I for iSCSI CFG, but at least via Remote Console CTRL-I does nothing. I haven't tried it via a direct connected keyboard as I am 30+ miles away from this server.

Thank you, but the installation is going to be done in Windows. Does a manual seemed for Windows exist?
