you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.
your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

Look in Bios setup for OS Install mode setting. If it is enabled, it restricts the RAM to 256MB. Change the setting to off and it will sense the total RAM

PowerEdge 2600 utilizes a Power Distribution Module (PDM) for power redundancy. The two (Max) Power Supply Units plug into the Power Distribution Module in the front and two power cords at the back from power outlets..
If a power supply lites RED, it indicates the respective power supply unit is faulty (normally) and/or the slot/PDM is faulty (very rear). Given that both power supplies indicated fault the issue may as well be with the PDM.
Check here for help to re-seat the PDM cables. If issue persists consider replacing the PDM.
Let me know if further help is needed

PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..
You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..
I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]
