Adding Promise Ultra TX2 IDE Controller to Redhat 9
Posted on 2003-11-21
Okay, I'm a total newby to Linux, but I'm determined to escape from this evil Windows world. This seems like a trivial task, but I'm going to ask the experts.....
I have Redhat 9 installed on Pentium based system. I purchased a Western Digital 160gig IDE drive, which included a Promise Ultra TX2 IDE controller to allow you to break the 137gig barrier. I installed the controller and the drive, booted the computer up, and watch the Promise contoller being recognized along with the 160gig drive. Redhat begins to load but does not prompt me that new hardware has been found. I can't find a Linux driver on Promise's site, yet I have found other postings where users have a Redhat 9 system and this same controller. How do you do it?
