That's a pretty specific question, on pretty specific hardware.
What hard drive(s) do you have? SATA? (P)ATA? Do you have a filesystem already on the drive that you are trying to preserve and just add in Linux?
EDIT: Ahhhh... rack mount server. Let me see what info I can google up.
EDIT #2: This is a Linux-compatible device. Dell even factory-loads various Linux flavors on it, at customer request. Bad hardware?
