Description Daniel Stone 2000-12-17 19:17:35 EST
We are trying to run RedHat 6.2 on some servers with a Mylex DAC960 RAID
controller (RedHat 7 has been deemed too experimental), and in booting from
the bootdisks, we noted that the RAID driver wouldn't recognise partition
numbers greater than 7, hence crippling us to 4 partitions in the install,
and asking operators to fdisk, edit fstabs, mount, remount, create
temporarymounting points, etc, is a procedural nightmare.
This bug isn't actually as much with the bootdisks/installer as it is with
the kernel - the bug has definitely been fixed in 2.2.17.
Could you please issue new bootdisks to rectify this problem? Thankyou very
Daniel Stone

My bad, this has been reported before.
This sucks just a bit, though.
