I can't boot the server after instaling Ubuntu 8 on a HP Proliant DL 380 G4. I figure it has to do with some pree-boot settings. The server finds the raid, does a number of checks etc. and then goes to search for DHCP. This fails and then a message "PXE-E53 - No boot filename received" is displayed...
There is a DHCP server in the network, but I don't know it's configuration if that is an issue here...
Please help a novice!

Disable the PXE while startup and then set the DHCP option from OS.

Did the install go fine, or did it come up with any errors? This normally happens when operating system is not found on C: (logical drive). During POST the server checks for each of the devices (listed in boot order) for boot files. If it can't find any, it moves on to the next device in the list. Since your network card (most possibly) is the last in the boot order, the server stops there, trying to PXE boot.
The PXE boot is a feature of the network controller. You need to press F9 after the POST completes and get into the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU). Once in, select Standard Boot Order (IPL). Disable the Network controller there (as you need to boot from the hard drive & not from the network).
While you are there, check to make sure that the hard drive (on which Ubuntu is installed) is listed in this list.
If all else fails, can you try a different version of Linux (Suse/Redhat) as they are officially supported? As there could be many issues with Ubuntu loading the correct drivers for the controller / hard drives.

I think I will try to reinstal GRUB and se if that solves the problem.

This error occurs when you try to install linux variants in Proliant wtih storage arrays like EVA and 3PAR .
Here is the fix
In /etc/grub.conf (a link to /boot/grub/grub.conf) uncomment the
line that looks like this:
* Make sure /boot/grub/device.map is setup right and looks like this:
(fd0) /dev/fd0 (hd0) /dev/cciss/c0d0
* Run grub like this:
/sbin/grub --batch --device-map=/boot/grub/device.map --config-file=/boot/grub/grub.conf --no-floppy grub> root (hd0,0) grub> setup (hd0) grub> quit
