Looks like what I ended up doing is using the DRAC and media load, so just loaded the ISO via the DRAC and was able to install via that method!   Now trying to figure out ISCSI :)

As it is Debian based, it's easier to install Debian Squeeze, and then add the Proxmox APT repository and install proxmox.
