This works great on 7.3. Is there any "extras" I need to apply? I tried
"linux nomodprobe", linux apic, and shows the same thing. Any help would

I have the exact same problem but without the SCSI twist and I'm running RH7.2.
I have 4 IDE drives and three RAID partition (md0, md1, md2)--one RAID0, one
RAID1, and one RAID5.
I start the upgrade by booting from a floppy. I choose "linux text". It loads
and tells me it can't detect any valid installations. The RAID drivers appear to
load but the devices don't mount.
I tried the suggestion in Bug 65192 but got many anaconda errors and the
I haven't many problems with Redhat's installation routine so I'm not real
familiar with troubleshooting it. Please let me know if there's any information
I can provide about the install, log files, or whatnot so I can do so.
Can you copy /tmp/syslog and /tmp/anaconda.log from the installer environment to
a floppy and attach them to this bug report?
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have further
