HP Proliant DL380 G3 Server

Hello, we have recently purchased a refurbished DL380 G3 server. Is it possible to run Windows XP on it temporarily as a file server while we decide on a server OS?
If so, how can we get the server to boot from CD? It appears that it is setup to boot from CD first, but it does not seem to even try.
One of the OS's we are looking at is Lotus Foundations Start. Any thoughts on this OS, particularly with this server?
