Red Hat WS 4.4 on T3400

Can you use RHEL 4.5 or 4.6? This system was tested with 4.5 and later, so either of those should work.

Yes. I am booting from the CD-ROM. It is an x64
version. It has installed successfully on a Precision
390. The only difference I can surmise is that it is a
SATA Optical drive.

I can't install over the network at this time, this is
my preferred method of provisioning machines. 

I have switched the SATA Operation mode in the BIOS
from AHCI to ATA, thinking that might resolve, but to
no avail. 

I think the onboard controller is an Intel ICH7DR, but
I am unable to find a driver disk at the Intel site at
this time.
