Description turner 1999-04-01 20:47:37 UTC
Posted for john

PPro, Tyan motherboard.
3 Buslogic 958 SCSI controllers
2 Tulip based NIC
256M RAM
2 hard drives (seagate 4G and WD 2G) attached to buslogic #1
8 18G HD attached to Buslogic #2
another 8 18G HD attached to Buslogic #3

Running 5.2 install over NFS. FDisk'd the first drive (4G
Seagate) on teh first controller, it told me I had to reboot
this time and forced the reboot. I rebooted. When I got up
to fdisk again, I said 'done' and got "TOO MANY DRIVES: You
have more drives that this program supports.
Please use teh standard fdisk program to setup your drives
and please notify RedHat Software that you saw this message"
I'm notifying you.

I'm unplugging the disk arrays and jsut installing that way.

Have nice day.
