Description Dave J. Andruczyk 2000-04-01 03:35:22 UTC
My system has a primarily SCSI system, (All scsi disks, 1 cdrom burner, on
a buslogic bt958 controller), but with ONE IDE cdrom (primary master)

I can boot the redhat CD off of either cdrom, SCSI or IDE.  The problem is
that when booting from the SCSI CDrom. The installer never asks to load a
SCSI module, and subsequently keeps tryin to access "hda" (IDE cdrom)
instead, and prevents me from going further.  I did NOT try removing the
IDE drive and installing (which I think would work), instead I jsut used
the IDE drive to install, but it the installer should take care of this
condition GRACEFULLY and still prompt the user to load a driver (for SCSI)
EVEN if IDE devices are still there.. In EXPERT mode it DID NOT.

I did manage to get by this one, but other less experienced users may run
into trouble...

this is probably hardware specific ... using 6.2 I cannot reproduce this
behavior (ie the buslogic module is loaded properly by the installer) using the
Buslogic BT 948 (closest test lab hardware)
