Recently, I purchased a server off of eBay, and got it. I knew this would be a problem from the start, and looking for help.
The server doesn't include a CD drive. It comes with no operating system. When turning the system on, it says something about PXE.
Here's the link to the exact auction I won:
Verari Server Dual AMD Opteron 2.0GHz 4GB 120GB IDE 1U - eBay (item 110352457320 end time Feb-19-09 18:00:00 PST)
Now I'm wondering, is there any possible way to get an OS on this? I'm sure there is, but I've never really installed any distro without having a CD drive.
I'm currently using an iMac, and I have Windows XP installed via bootcamp. The iMac was purchased new in September.
Is there ANYTHING I can do to get this server an OS?
Any of your time, suggestions, and help is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!
(At my disposal is a 30GB iPod video, if that can be of any use as an external drive, or anything like that).
