I don't know if this could be useful, but I have had issues with this 
particular server model and the fact that it comes with a NIC 
(Broadcom 5722) that is not supported by the default Debian Stable 
(Etch) installer. To resolve easily, I simply put in another network 
card to perform the install, and then installed the required modules 
once it was up and running.
