Red Hat Enterprise Linux not on the SmartStart 8 OS list

I'm trying to setup a server using the SmartStart 8 disc, but the only two operating systems selectable on the install screen are Windows 2003 and Windows 2008. Why isn't Red Hat Enterprise Linux there?

Re: Red Hat Enterprise Linux not on the SmartStart 8 OS list

Sorry, I should also note that I am using an HP DL380 G3 with a P400 controller, one which I believe is supported by Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Certainally SmartStart 8 is available from the RHEL download page.

Clicking the "Why is my OS not listed here?" link leads to a page with headers but no data under the table headers i.e. no listed unsupported OSs.

I've tried installing from a CentOS 5.2 Final DVD and it works with the controllers.
