How to install Red Hat Enterprise 4 on HP ProLiant DL140 G2 3.40GHz SCSI Server?

Please tell me how to install Red Hat Enterprise 4 on HP ProLiant DL140 G2 3.40GHz SCSI Server!

I've just bought this server and couldn't install linux on it. The problem is with SCSI adapter. Linux couldn't see any hard disc.

The server has one 36GB SCSI disc and a CD drive. There is no diskette drive.

I appreciate any help.

You need to install RHEL4 update 1
Update 1 has the scsi drivers built in.
If it is like my dl145 though, it will soon crash/hang with disk write errors. I tried a new disk and a single disk, but the same thing will happen. I installed Win2003 and it has been up for 3 months now, so I know the disks are good. I see there is a new firmware upgrade, but no mention of scsi fixes and no rhel4 scsi drivers on the HP dl145 site.
