Description of problem:
Adaptec 2400A raid with latest bios (v001.62 2002/11/06) is not
recognized. Same problem with FC2. 

FC1 installed and worked just fine...

to select drivers now?" -> The following devices have been found on
your system ..I2O block device driver (i2o_block)-> Selecting that,
pressing Done, graphical part starts.

Select language, keyboard, coming to Disk partitioning, select
automatically (does not matter which)-> Message box  "An error has
occured - no valid devices were found on which to create new file
systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem"

Pressing OK shuts down the installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the install from CD, follow prompts.

Actual Results:  RAID is not recognized, installation shutdowns.

Expected Results:  Install, just as it worked with FC1

Additional info:

Computer - Dell PowerEdge 600SC, 512RAM, Raid 5 with 3*200GB

Same here - the Adaptec 2400A is found, but array attached to it is not.

Fixed. I found the drive under /dev/i2o/hda.
