I'm brand new to Linux and just purchased The Complete Linux OS 6.5 (Linux-Mandrake 6.1) I printed out everything under Device Manager in Win98. Under SCSI controllers, I have Device: Promise Technology Inc. Ultra66 IDE Controller. However, when I go to choose this when I'm asked if I have SCSI controllers in the installation there isn't a choice for it. I tried selecting anything, but none of the other devices are to be found. I tried selecting 'No' when asked about SCSI controllers just to see what would happen and I get an error message of, "...no valid devices were found on which to create new filesytems...". Can someone please help me? Thanks.
