1) That system is a Dimension 3000, which is a desktop, not a server.
2) It appears to have been ordered with Windows XP, if you want to keep XP on the system and set it up, you will need to do as it says, go to the control panel, select 'add remove programs->windows components' to select components you wish to have installed.
3) This is not a PowerEdge server or a Linux question, so I would suggest calling support instead of emailing this mailing list for fastest assistance.
