Installation documentation for rx8640

I need step by step installation instructions for my rx8640 server.
I have an ignite tape that I want to use, but I need the procedure as to how to boot from the ignite tape. Also I do not know the hardware paths to the DVDs and the tape drives.
There are 4 DVDs and 4 tape drives
Any documentation to load the OS will be appreciated
thanks

Ignite-Ux Administration Guide

Chapter 13: Recovery Methods

Subchapter 2: Creating and Using Recovery Tapes

Subtitle: Tape Recovery for Itanium-based Systems

http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5992-4731/ch13s02.html#v1503925

It begins with the instructions on how to find out the correct hardware paths.

That was the _first_ document listed on the page linked by James. That page says: "Ignite-UX Administration guide - [...] Describes how to recover clients from media or over the network".

Let me tell you the secret of a quick and painless RTFM:

Most documents have an index right at the beginning. Read it first.
