I’ve just installed Debian Sarge on a HP Proliant DL320 without a hitch.
It is a Xeon 3.4GHz hyperthreaded with 1Gb ram and a single SATA disk.
I booted it via PXE since it has no optical drive and no floppy and ran the installation from there.
The basic system works perfectly, with a stock Debian 2.6.12 SMP kernel.
I still haven’t tried stuff like usb, rtc, admin interface etc. I’ve only had it for enough time to set it up to what its supposed to do 🙂

can you help me?
i am using debian3.1r3 and HP DL140. and i have a cdrom on DL140, but,,,the problem is the installer never detect the SATA device.
I succeed in PC with sata disk, just need to modify sata mode to ide mode.
but on HP DL140 bios, it seems can not use ide mode to connect sata disk.
