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):
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.
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.
indeed, this is the only supported option, due to the poor quality of
the buslogic driver in 2.6 kernels.
