Microsoft, Windows Server 2003, Trying to intsall Server 2003

I am trying to install Windows Server 2003 on a Dell Poweredge 6450 - I get 2% into the install and the machine hangs.  I have to re-boot machine and install does not finish.  I am not getting any errors on the machine itself.  Any suggestions.

you really don't need the prep disk just makes install easier...take the service tag from the dell server and goto http://support.dell.com from there you can download all the drivers as well as find out what hardware is actually on the box.

We are a non-profit so the server was donated to us without software.  I will try going online to see if I can download anything.  I didn't realize we needed to prep first.
