Make sure you've applied the latest firmware for this server. Support for this OS wasn't added until the last release of the firmware (see URL below). You can use the Systems ROMPaq Upgrade Diskette or you should be able to boot from a Firmware Maintenance CD to perform the update.

Also, ensure you install the OS using the SmartStart assisted installation. I've had problems in the past when installing Windows without it.
