This shouldn't be necessary, I have used the compact install disks for
this purpose. http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/bf-temp/
(and just fyi.. http://www.google.com/search?q=debian+dl380 has this
same info as the first result)
Also, regarding backup, if you are using backup exec, their unix agent
is a free download and works quite nicely.
