How do I Install Solaris on a DL360

I am trying to Install Solaris on a DL360. I am unable to use the Smartstart CD because the only Unix flavor available is SCO. I was able to download the Compaq System Configure Utility and the Compaq System Erase Utility. These helped me prepare the server for software installation but Solaris is unable to see the logical drive. I tried installing different drivers and when Solaris asked for the supplemental disks I gave it the Compaq Solaris Driver Update (DU) Diskette for Solaris 8 vs. 1.40 and Solaris was still unable to detect the controller. I am new to Solaris and to Compaq hardware. Can anyone guide me through the install process or point me in the direction for documentation as the only information I can find is what I have already found.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Try manual install if you are booting of start start cd.
and make sure you have the latest Du diskettes
ALso boot of solaris cd1 of 2 do not use the install cd
