hi.  how would I make the LUN 0 image with the latest ESXi binary in the storage system?  the storage system I would be using is Dell Compellent but in any case, I would think I would need to configure the HBA to boot to a LUN from the HBA bios which is Emulex.   What I don't get it is how I would get that latest ISO of build ESXi 5 (639890) into LUN 0 into the storage system.

Insert the CDROM, BOOT the server with the ISO of ESXi 5.0, and at the Installer screen select LUN 0 to install ESXi 5.0.
