You can use a driver image from the red, use:

linux dd=url

where urs is the HTTP, FTP or NFS address of the driver images.

Shalom,

Yes.

You can also download the driver to pc and ftp it in after moving the file to a machine on the same network as the DL385.

What options do you have in the screen:

Driver Disk Source

Have your plugged the USB disk before booting the installation media so it can be detected?

You can create a Driver Update Diskette from the software available at http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/1116_6272.html#32
Then connect your USB floppy drive with the diskette in it, boot the server from CD 1, and at the prompt enter, 'linux dd'. Then follow the instructions as they appear on the screen.

i jave try all and the problem is up. i have verify this:
if i load wmware esx server it see smart array p400 and the same if i load CENTOS4 OS. THEN i think if i use RHEL ES VERSION 4 UPDATE X ( I DON'T KNOW THE VERSION OF UPDATE ) THIS IS THE SOLUTION AT MY PROBLEM.

WHO CAN CONFIRM THAT I SAY??
