Description of problem:
I'm attempting to boot off of rhel4 beta2 ISO's in VMware, and it 
does not see the buslogic card for a disk adapter.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot off ISO image
2. start the install [hit enter]
3. after skipping cd media check it looks for the disk adapter, 
states there are no hard drives and wants to load a kernel module.

Expected Results:  Buslogic card should have been recognized.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-02-03 13:47:16 EST
The buslogic driver isn't included in the kernel.

Note that one workaround is to do the vmware advanced setup and change
your scsi adapter to be mptfusion instead.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-02-03 14:35:20 EST
indeed, this is the only supported option, due to the poor quality of
the buslogic driver in 2.6 kernels.
