Blade server AND SB 40 Configure Red Hat Linux

We are having Enclosure 7000 Blade, 460 server and Blade Storage SB40.Server is running Red Hat 4 update 5. 1. We need to configure this SB40 system for Linux server. I can see server SB40 Storage Box on ILO but couldn’t able to power on it. I have followed Hp storage Works All-in-one SB 600C Storage Blade solution quick start Instructions through the ILO and found that the SB40 only Support Windows OS.
Please instruct me,
1.How can I power on the SB 40 Server?

2.Is it support Linux ?

the SB40c supports linux(whatever you mean under support). You can think of it as a 6 HDDs attached the the partner blade.

There is a P400 in the sb40c and the sas signals are routed from the SB40c to the blade..that's it- as a locally attached storage, so every OS is supported.

Requirements are :

Be sure that it is installed in the adjacent slot on the same zone as the partner blade.
Be sure that the partner blade is turned off.
Check OA for errors - if there is enough cooling and PSUs.

all info :

If you still can't get it running, please note:

1. in which slots are the sb40c and the partner blade
2. Firmware of the sb40c and the OA.
3. LED status of the SB.
4. Are there enough fans in the proper config?
