installing windows 2000

I am installing win 2000 on my DL580 G3 with four SCSI drives.  I get to the F6 part but don't have the file required.  Can anyone tell me the software needed?  I don't have an A drive either.  I assume the CD drive will do.

Try this:  SmartStartCD 7.90


SmartStart is an essential single-server deployment tool that simplifies HP ProLiant server setup, providing a repeatable way to deploy reliable and consistent single-server configurations. SmartStart uses embedded ROM-based setup utilities (RBSU) to configure server and array controller hardware.

SmartStart users enjoy the following benefits:

  • An easy-to-use, intuitive graphical interface that guides you through preparing your system for the OS installation process.
  • Integration of key server software drivers and management agents through ProLiant Support Packs with every assisted installation.
  • Dependency and validity checks to ensure that all supported ProLiant software can be installed.
