Description of problem:
I'm running system version 6.2 on machine with Adaptec 2100S SCSI 
controller and 2 SCSI disks configured to hardware RAID-1.

During upgrade to 7.2 installer claims that it found existing system on 
partition /dev/i2o/hda8. But one step after confirmation "Upgrading the 
Red Hat Linux installation on partition /dev/i2o/hda8" it says:
"Error mounting device sda8 as /: No such device. This most likely means 
this partition has not been formatted. Press OK to reboot your system"

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

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to upgrade system under described conditions.	

Actual Results:  Upgrade fails

Expected Results:  Successful upgrade procedure

But in system version 7.2 there are i2o_block, i2o_core and i2o_pci 
drivers supplied and these modules works with devices names 
like /dev/i2o/hd...
