Use the OpenManage DVD that came with the server to first prepare the server, and then from within that you also get a list of OS's you can install and select the one you want. As soon as the system is ready the DVD will pop out and ask you to insert your OS installation CD or DVD.

Also make sure you use a Linux Distribution that is certified for that server, and that it is current, and not some ancient distro.

It appears as though the kernel version must exceed 2.6.33 to contain the H700 drivers.  Only RHEL and SUSE are supported by Dell on the R710.  That doesn't mean others won't work - those are just the ones Dell has tested and validated, so if you are using a different disto, the OpenManage DVD likely won't work and you will either need to use a current enough version to contain the drivers or find and load a driver for an older version.

Which Linux distro and version are you trying to install?
