Since you put 2008 in your tags, let me offer a correction to smackdown's answer:

SBUU (Systems Build and Update Utility) can be used for the installation, BUT it does not contain all the drivers for 2008 and later, nor does it contain the OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) software.  For OMSA, if you choose to use SBUU, just make sure you uncheck the box for installation of OMSA (you can install it post-OS-install).  As for the drivers, you need to use the driver pack below together with SBUU:

The better way to go is to use SMTD (Systems Management Tools and Documentation).  It is an all-in-one utility that contains SBUU, the OMSA installation files, and drivers for all supported OS's:
