Compaq SmartStart CDs

Posts: n/a
I have acquired a Compaq Proliant 1600 server from work (love those
asset write-offs) and I would like to nuke it and rebuild it from
scratch. Unfortunately, the SmartStart CDs that came with it are long

Would some kind soul happen to have a spare set floating around that
would work on this box? I think the latest SmartStart version for
this machine is 5.5.

I have found some some good instructions on the net about doing it all
manually using floppies (ugh), but it would be nice to just pop the CD
in and go.
