Thank you Patrick. Might there be plans to change this? I imagine I'm
not the only person such a change would benefit.

Hello everyone. I just tried installing SLES 10 for i386 on a PowerEdge
1600SC using the most recent version (5.2, A00, dated 4/10/07) of the
subject CD. Despite being listed as a supported operating system under
the "Compatibility" section at the bottom of the following web page,
when booted, the only choices offered were Microsoft server operating
Undeterred, I downloaded the previous version of the subject CD (5.1,
A00, dated 9/28/06) only to experience the exact same thing! The server
itself is nothing out of the ordinary. It contains one 2.4GHz Xeon
processor, and a single 36GB SCSI hard drive powered by the onboard LSI
Am I missing something? Has anyone out there done this successfully?
