Linux install on blade servers

Customer wants to install Red Hat on a blade at a colocation facility, they do not have another Linux server to run the RDP software from. I am unable to get a network boot from the system to connect to an ftp site using ILO card and mounting floppy drive. Any suggestions for using the ILO card to do the install or is the customer going to need to put a linux box in place to use RDP

Re: Linux install on blade servers

What flavor of RedHat are you trying to install. You can use the Linux RedHat bootnet image as the Virtual Floppy and connect to your ftp server for the install. You can download this image at, under Software and Drivers.
