Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
Another common way around installation is to copy the whole contents of the CD / DVD to a hard drive.
There are a few methods.
My proffered is to make a bootable flash drive on another machine with known working capabilities that will bot into either an XP-pre installation scenario or a Dos based one.
From there it is often possible to start the installation or even copy the required files to a drive on a machine.
Advantage of copying the files is that the CD / DVD would never be needed to add additional component as they are stored on the machine itself.
That also speeds up installation dramatically.
Bios consideration mus be taken into account when booting from flash drives.
Proper external Hard drives are another viable option

Testimonial: "I didn't have a Flash drive available but I changed the CD drive (laptop cd drive) and it worked. Seems like the other one didn't recognize the CD."
