    Need help to install OES 2 SP1 and SLES 10 SP2 64bits into DELL PowerEdge T610

    Hi Everybody
    I'm new to Linux.
    I tried to install OES2 SP1 and SLES 10 SP2 64bit into DELL T610.
    My problems are:
    1. DELL Systems Management Tools disk does support SLES 10 SP2 but it can
    not include OES 2.
    2. Installing with SLES 10 SP2 disk, I can add OES 2 but it did not have
    driver for Broadcom, NetXtreme II

    Either methods, I can't intall OES 2.

    Please help. Thanks ahead.

    If it supports SLES10 SP2 then it supports OES2 SP1 as the latter is
    just an add-on to the former.

    This is one of the advantages of Open Enterprise Server (Linux) over
    NetWare in that if hardware works with SLES10x then it works with OES2x
    - there is no need for it to be separately certified like Novell had to
    do with NetWare.

    OES2 SP1 does not include any drivers - they're installed from the base
    OS of SLES10 SP2 and SLES10 SP2 definitely includes some Broadcom drivers.

    Given the above it would be helpful if you could detail exactly what
    you're doing so we can spot where the problem lies.
