Description of problem:
When attempting install of RH 7.2 on a server with a Adaptec 2100s RAID 
card, the installer loads the generic i2o(_block) driver regardless.  It 
seems to work, the partitioning works fine, but when it attempts to format 
it gets to about 30% and "locks up".  The installer is still alive, and I 
can switch to the text consoles, etc.
Instead of the generic i2o, it would be much better to just use the 
dpt_i2o driver from Adaptec.  I'm kinda surprised this driver isn't 
included since it's been in the -ac kernels for a couple months already 
and is rock solid.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install :)

Additional info:
lspci output for the card:
