[K12OSN] New installation on an old Server

Well, after installing a PCI video card I was able to get through an
entire installation. Both NICs were recognized; even the raid array was
seen and used as it had been setup for just one drive. I rebooted, the
server tried as always to PXE boot then asked me to hit H to boot from
the hard drive. At which time it then told me Non-System disk or disk
error. There is nothing in the floppy or CD drive, or even the tape
drives. Anyone have a thought as to what may have gone wrong? I'm about
to give up on this server, I was hoping that with maxing the RAM in it I
could get a decent LTSP set up for nearly zero cost as we have more than
enough iPaqs for clients and this server is just collecting dust.
