DL380 G4 and Fedora kernel compilation

Greetings from Greece,

I've just purchased 2 DL380 G4 servers and asked from my sysadmin to compile the latest 2.4.x kernels for Fedora core 1, but he said that he couldn't do the compilation due to the fact that "this is exotic hardware and many drivers don't come with linux kernel source".

Can you please tell me how do you compile new kernels in DL380? Is the source of the drivers available somewhere?

Sincerely,

George Vardikos
