    Updated the iDrac6 firmware to 1.41, and BIOS to 2.0.11 tonight. It's
still the same. Also tried to attach the virtual media CD from XP SP2
without success. I can see device recognized by the Centos 5.4 from
syslog:

    But it still raises "No medium found" when mounting /dev/sdc.
    Any idea?
