Proliant 800 boot problem

I have a dual 500mHZ pro 800 rackable. I want to run array config and wipe windows 2003 but the smartstart 5.5 does not boot into , I have tried the floppy SCU and comes up with bad command interpreter then is just hangs on starting MS-DOS, have tried to run floppy ROM BIOS upgrade to P14 2002(it has P14 2000 at moment) and comes up with bad command line interpreter - I tried to boot SUSE install but doesn't like that either - I need to start afresh please help I don't like windows 2003!!!!!!!
Thx Rad

Re: Proliant 800 boot problem
