Precision 650. Needed for HD access of DELL PERC 320/DC.

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

4. start from cdrom in expert mode, when asked for driver disk insert floppy

Actual results:

Error: The floppy disk you inserted is not a valid driver disk for this release 
of Red Hat Linux Advanced Server.

Expected results:

acceptance of driver in order for installer to gain hard disk access

Additional info:

switched off second processor as well as hyperthreading because of suspected 
smp-kernel-related problem. However, no effect whatsoever.

No installation problems at all when using Redhat 9 !!!
