Installer doesn't recognize Compaq Integrated Array Controller (PCI) devices

Installer doesn't automatically recognize Compaq Integrated Array Controller (PCI) devices when doing a CD install on the ProLiant DL360 and
ProLiant DL380. The workaround is to use 'expert' mode and manually load the appropriate drivers.
It appears that the Compaq Integrated Array controller is not being auto-detected in Red Hat 7.0 Beta 3. It has the SYMBIOS chip 53C150. It
has two possible PCI VENDOR and DEVICE Ids, depending if it is configured in array, or non-array mode (Dumb SCSI).
In non-array mode (PCI VENDOR = 0x1000 DEV=0x000a) the symbios driver should be loaded.
In array mode (PCI VENDOR = 0x1000 DEV=0x0010) the cpqarray driver should be loaded.
This would be a problem in kudzu
These are all under the Symbios PCI id? OK, fixed in CVS.
The both have the same PCI *VENDOR* id, but they have different *DEVICE* ids.
(See the original description of the problem.) Have you added both drivers and device ids?
Yes; I'm just curious; do you know if it's possible to get the 0x0010 device
ID on a Symbios controller that's *not* a raid controller?
FYI - Charles White tells me that the 0x0010 device ID
will *not* exist if the controller isn't configured to do RAID.
Verified fixed in beta4.
