A little help Please. I set up my server 5 years ago and don't remember exactly
what I did but Novell 6.5 is great set it and forget about it, no problems.

So the question is, the hardware is starting to make funny noises. So before
it dies on me I need to get a new server. I am looking to the following from Dell

SYSTEM OPTIONS

Quad Core AMD® Opteron™ 1352; 2.1GHz,4X512K Cach
Memory
4GB, DDR2, 800MHz, 4x1GB,Dual Ranked DIMMs
Operating System
No Operating System

CD/DVD Drive
16X SATA DVD Drive
CD/DVD Drive for 2nd Bay

No Floppy Drive

Do I need an operating system?
On the new server do I install Novell 6.5 as a new installation?

I will have more question to come, but first I need a new server.

Thank you
Tom
