I believe Progeny uses its own installation. You'll probably want to go
bother them with this.

If you're installing from Debian boot-floppies, you'll need the compact 
flavor floppies. 

I only need rescue.bin and root.bin to get my DL360s on the air.
However, this gives you 2.2.19 and no-SMP.

The Debian Installation Manual is at 

Best of luck.
