Description of problem:
In contrast to RH EL 3.0 the RH EL 4.0 doesn't recognize the Fusion/LSI Logic MPT scsi controller and disks on my HP xw9300 workstation.
Selecting the drivers manually doesn't help either.
Therefore I can't install RH EL4.0 on that machine.
As said before RH EL 3.0 just works fine as well as Suse 9.3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert RH EL 4.0 CDROM and boot from it
2.The anaconda installer tells about an nVidia SATA controller but doesn't find the onboard Fusion/LSI Logic.
3.A manual selection of the LSI Logic controller doesn't get the scsi shown!
This sounds like the driver not supporting the controller you have.
Can you provide lspci -vn?

Enterprise Linux install boot prompt.
