Power Edge 840 Server, how to change the booting OS from Windows server 3 Raid to Linux File share


I appreciate any literature or help I can get installing a dedicated hard drive in an older Dell  Power Edge 840 server currently running Windows Server 3 to boot up Linux FreeNas and keep the RAID HD's for storage.

I installed FreeNas on a separate hard drive and tried to change the BIOS to make it the boot able hard drive, no luck.

The HD is recognized in the bios, but is not listed in the boot option.

What do I need to change in order to boot the Linux OS and still have the RAID HD for file sharing.

Thank you,
