Description of problem:
when i'm booting with cd 6.2 enterprise version, on a compaq proliant 
ML530, it can't load cciss drivers so before efining the partitions it 
shows a message that cannot detect storage device, because i'm in install 
mode i can't compile a new kernel with the patch file. i've tried to 
compile a new kernel with that patch and made an image on a floppy but it 
didn't work. I've tried the images on compaq website but it can only load 
the AIC7xxx modules. ver 7.1 is ok. so how i can find the proper modules 
for that raid?

message that can not detect the storage device.
