Description Han Kim 2000-03-01 20:37:04 UTC
With mutiple compaq array controller, installer will display incorrect
disk information.  lsmod command on 2nd terminal(Ctrl+Alt+F2) during
installation will show software RAID modules(0,1,5) installed
automatically. I assume this cause unnecessary S/W RAID running and result
in installer to recognize incorrect disk size and configuration.

***System Configuration***
Server type:  PL 8000
Processor Type & QTY: 1 Processor 550/100 MHZ
System ROM Ver: P41 (01/17/2000)
Other Controller: SA4200. Brazos(876)
OS under test: Red Hat 6.1.92
Boot device: SA4250ES

***Steps to Reproduce***

1. Configure each array controller with Compaq ACU(Array Configuration
	SA4250ES - 4unit of 4 Gb hdisk with RAID5 - 12Gb of space available
	SA4200 - 2 unit of 4Gb hdisk wtih RAID1 - 4Gb of space available

2. Start installation

3. Disk partitioning phase during installation, lower part of disk druid
display following disk infomation on the array controllers.
	ida/c0d0  - Total Available : 4091Mb
	ida/c1d0  - Total Available : 4091Mb  -  (Actual size available is
