HP ProLiant Management Software packages for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 ("lenny") are delivered in an apt-cdrom compatible CD-ROM image. To use it, burn the image to a CD and insert the CD into the target system. Remote users may prefer to use the iLO 2 virtual media feature to using a physical CD. See the iLO 2 user manual for more information.

Next, make the packages available for install via apt using the apt-cdrom command:

    # apt-cdrom add

Once this command is executed, apt-cdrom will remember what packages are on this CD and apt-get will prompt you to insert this CD when you request a package from it.
