SOURCE: I'm having some trouble with
You are not too clear, however I'll take a guess ..
1) Booting from CD ... older CD drives fitted to PE26xx range do not recognize Windows 2003 bootable install CD's .. the TS-L462C (a laptop drive) should be compatible with the PE 2650 (I know it works in my 2600)
2) Installing the Operating System onto the PERC SCSI Array drives .. a total pain .. with older OS (Windows 2000) you can use the 4 x floppy disk set to install and hit (F6 ? as I recall) to tell it to 'load a 3rd party driver' ... get the PERC drivers from the Dell site.
Alternative = toss the useless Tape Drive and install a set of SATA drives in the same space (a 3 drive Hot Swap caddy eclosure will fit = Icy Box or StarTech) .. you will need a PCI RAID card (such as Si3124) since the M'Bd has nothing but a combined floppy/TapeDrive IDE interfafce.
3) Finally, be aware that this is a SERVER level box .. spare parts & Dell 'official' upgrades are going to cost you an arm & a leg = and don't even ask what the special 'ECC parity' Memory sticks cost :-)

If this is a security concern then there is nothing to be concerned about so long as you do not plug a network cable into the RAC.
Otherwise, if it is an add-in card just remove it.
If you can't remove it there should be a way of accessing it when the server starts up. You should be able to go into the configuration and disable its functions.
I hope this helps.

you need an extra cd, called dell server assistant. you can download id from dell, or download as a torrent file. there is a menu that says install server 2003, server 2003 x64, windows 2000,or install linux.
choose your option and follow the menu, and your server is ready to use.
you also need the installation cd of server 2003 or any thing that is on the menu.
