Unless you need to modify the hardware settings you don't need it for anything when installing Linux.
It's only purpose is hardware configuration and creation of the EISA partition. Now you don't actually need the EISA partition at all. It's just convenient sometimes when you need to change a hardware setting and can't be bothered to boot from the CD.


How do I start SmartStart?!!!! It doesn’t want to boot from the CD’s – assuming they are bootable…

The SmartStart for Servers CD is bootable. The Management CD is not.
