    Experienced the same when installing RHEL5 on a JS21 blade.
    Did you solve this ?

    FYI, I was able to install RHEL5 on a p505, although in HMC mode and in a micropartition and not in full system mode.

      Pick a distro. I believe sles 10 and rhel 5 should work. Check their web sites to be sure.

      Download the iso.

      Burn the cd/dvd

      Insert the cd/dvd into the drive.

      Boot. Follow the instructions.

      Post a specific question when stuck.

      There's of course an IBM redbook if you want more details on the p505...
