   Dear Owensleftfoot
                                      I  dont know whats happening I downloaded the specific driver again and again. and tried to load it. But it didnt help.
But when i used the mount command and extracted the image.. the readme file is now ok and readable.. But i found that the "modules.dep" file is empty in all my downloads. Is it empty by default???
                                       
   Thanks and regards

It is meant to be empty. What is the exact error message you get?

 there is no error message, when we extracts it shows 2888+ in..  out...
then when we put the floppy asking for the driver disk, it loads without any error....

 owensleftfoot..
                         i had mailed to the adaptec people... they said to install the Adaptec 2015S raid controller which we had,so that 2015S would take over and aic7902 wolud dissapear.. and they provided a link for the driver for 2015S RAID controller.So i installed the 2015S RAID Controller and then installed RH 7.2 with the drivers.. The installation was successful as the drivers detected the SCSI HardDisks.  But it is not booting.  ITS GETTING STUCK at the point of detecting i20 RAID Controller....

    Detecting I2O RAID Controller......
    Adaptec i20 RAID CONTROLLER 0 irq=30

    BAR0   f8826000  -size = 100000
    BAR1   f8927000  -size = 1000000

   its not continuing after that.... Is it the problem with the aic-7902 driver??? also i have not configured the RAID BIOS.. Is it required to create RAID from BIOS for a successful booting....

 please provide a solution....  either aic-7902.. or 2015S RAID sholud work for me as soon  as possible

 Thanks and  Regards...

You need to intitialise the drives and create the array in the controller bios before you actually do the install of redhat.
