If it is a Dell poweredge like you say, you are in luck. Dell has just
recently opened up their own linux site at http://linux.dell.com . They
also link to this location: http://oregonstate.edu/~kveton/debian/

That location has a debian 2.4.23 based ISO that will allow you to
atleast get an initial base install running. From there, is just a
little make-kpkg away from a newer customized kernel!

There is even a how-to on that page on how to get your own customized
kernel on the bootbf image.

Good Luck,
