PowerEdge 6100 PXE Debian issues

My customer is experiencing issues getting their 6100 to PXE and load a Debian image.

They have no issues using this method with other vendors and our tech support was not able to help.

>From my customer:

We are using a lustre-patched version of lenny.

Our PXE is set up to auto-detect the disk driver, but it's not. I assume I need to use the Fusion MPT SAS driver, but the only one listed in the PXE options for disk drivers is mpt2sas, and it doesn't seem to work.  At least, I think that's what's wrong, as it doesn't find my udp-sender after I load that (or any other) disk driver.  Of course, I could be wrong about what is causing the failure...

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
