Description josh 2000-01-03 17:37:09 UTC
I have a HP Net Server LM with a Mylex raid controller with 5, 1GB HP SCSI
hard disks attached. They are set up as one logical disk in a stripe set
with parity. During the Install a error message will report that " no hard
disks have been found to install Linux to " I am suspecting that Linux can
not access the Mylex raid. During the install it will ask for any SCSI
devices that are attached to the system but the Mylex raid controller is
not a choice. I know being a novice at Linux there is probly a driver or
something that is needed that I am over looking. I am not doing any thing
special just a basic Linux 5.2 install on the Net Server.

This is definitely a case where we would recommend that you go with the latest
release of Red Hat Linux.  The support for hardware RAID devices is good in
release 6.0 and even better in release 6.1.  The Mylex RAID controller is not
even supported under Red Hat Linux in release 5.2, which is why you are seeing
the problems.
