Description of problem:
Do a Clean install on WD Raptor SATA Drive, + Dual Opteron + HDAMA board +
using it's onboard Promise SATA150 TX4 = Nothing will work because lack of
driver (support) for any SATA, I tried using SATA Driver for RH8 for SMP still
nothing. sigh ....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Clean Install, Boot : Expert or linux dd
2.Prompt you for Driver, yes, and it seems to be able to load the RH8 Driver
3.at the Parition part Disk Durid saids no HDD found, installation abort
Actual Results: installation cannot contiune.
Expected Results: at least it should be able to "use" the older driver and at
least let me complete the installation first....sigh
Red Hat Linux 8.0 driver disks are for an entirely different architecture
(ia32). GinGin64 is an AMD64 operating system. The kernel modules will not work.
