I have one of those servers but seeing you are running woody I would
advice you to upgrade to debian sarge first i.e:

echo 'deb stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

then grab the latest kernel from testing (to get udev instead of
devfs), somthing like the following should do the trick:

mv /etc/apt/souces.list /etc/apt/sources.list.orig
echo 'deb testing main' > /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get install udev linux-image-2.6.15-1-686-smp
mv /etc/apt/souces.list.orig /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update

You might want to grab the software from a different mirror.
