This isn't an error, it's just an informative message. It's probably
wrong or misleading, but without seeing the current Intel errata list..

We support, test, and use the Compaq DL360 extensively in clusters. The
only specific note is that you must first run the magic DL360
preparation CD-ROM: "Compaq SmartStart for Servers". I don't know
exactly what it does, but if you don't first prepare the machine you
will get unpredicatable behavior such as broken transmit or multicast
