Linux is supported on it yes.

How did you try to install it?

See http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/software/index.html for support.

Pretty sure you tried SmartStart...

Smartstart does not support linux deployment, use your distro's installation media.

Denise,
For more help and info you could also check out:
http://www.hp.com/go/linux
For example, clicking Certification & support, then ProLiant and BladeSystem Servers, scroll down and click DL380 G7 for specifics.
If you are considering another disbro, from the above link, click Linux distributions.

Hope that helps,
Dave

In some cases you can use the smartstart or a floppy that you can download from HP's website.
