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.

Tommy

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.
