How to Install OS without DVD and USB boot

I just purchased a used Dell F1D 1U rack mount server and would like to install Ubuntu or ESXi with Virtual Disks or anything for that matter. I'v read that Dell's have built in DRAC so you can access it remoteley but There are 3 ethernet plugs in the back but I dont know which one to use.

In the BIOS it says I can configure Remote access on [com1] or [com2] not sure if that is ethernet 1 & 2. I also set it up so to use a static IP adress.

Thats as far as I have gone. Not sure what to do next.

All my computers are OSX or Linux and the only Windows I have is via VMWare. What steps to i do now?
