You'll most likely need either the cpqarray or cciss drivers.  I have
a pair of DL580's that are similar in hardware and that's the modules
needed for RHEL4 to see the (hardware RAID) volumes.

The file.dd is probably a floppy disk image, which can be written to a
floppy with "dd if=file.dd of=/dev/fd0".  The drivers on that floppy
can then be loaded during the installation process.
