OK, so I'm attempting a fresh installation of NW 6.5 OES on a Dell
PowerEdge 2800, and the install gets partway through and barfs on
attempting to mount the CDROM (I think!?).

Anyway, I found a TID that seems to address this problem (TID 10084945),
however I'd prefer to attempt the hardware workaround that the TID
mentions versus installing 6.0 and upgrading to 6.5.

Problem is that I can't seem to find anywhere in BIOS to turn off IDE
channel 3/turn on IDE channel 2, nor does the BIOS show anywhere to
modify these values. This is box is about a year and a half old.

I thought about maybe flashing the BIOS, but not sure that would really
help resolve this problem.

Anybody on good speaking terms with Dell?

Thanks in advance - Ralph
