You may have better luck with the installer ISO available from a link on
the www.debian.org/ports/ia64 page.  It has a much newer kernel than the one
that was used for the Debian 3.0 (woody) installation media.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about the Compaq DL-590.  It may need a
firmware update if it's another flavor of repackaged "Lion" system.  Anyone
on the list who is running Debian on a DL-590 or who knows enough to enlighten
us, please speak up!
