I'm guessing, by the reference to "Expert mode" that you are trying to install RedHat. What version? And which RAID card do you have? It's hard to be specific without knowing what you are using.

For RedHat 7.1 you'll want to use "linux dd" and for 7.0 you'll use "expert". In either case you'll need the correct driver install image already copied onto a floppy and will simply insert that when prompted. Once the driver is loaded the install process is simply a text mode install on either of those versions of RedHat.

You should get a prompt for the drivers (I think it's at the start of the install), you will need to obtain the drivers on diskette which you may either already have or have to download off the internet.

You must find out the RAID crontoller type/model as jlevie stated though.

Yep, the driver that you have isn't going to work with RedHat 7.1. And as far as I know right now there aren't any drivers for those controllers for 7.1 (or more specifically any 2.4.x kernel). You can get the current driver from Adaptec (http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.html?cat=/Product/ASR-2100S&filekey=asr_rhat7_v221_drv.img) which will work with RedHat 7.0. Until Adaptec releases a driver compatible with the 2.4 kernels RedHat 7.0 is the highest version you can run.
