I need to install RHE3 onto a HP DL380 (i686). I cannot use RHE4 because the app we need to install is written for v3.
When I install I get the No Harddrives have been found message (before gui) after the cciss driver gets loaded. I assume I need to install the raid controller driver from HP using linux dd command at setup. However the driver is on floppy or rpm? The DL380 I have does not have a floppy. Can I copy the rpm onto a removable disk? Also do I need the other storage drivers?
Is it easier to somehow recompile the install cd's (or attempt a network install) to incorporate all of HP's latest drivers for the dl380?

I have used Smartstart 7.3 (and 7.4) to create the raid. The disk space is over 1tb, I assume Linux can hanle that. Are there any other raid settings that linux does not support? Max boot size.. stripe size?
Sorry bit of a beginner to Linux on servers.
PS hardware definatly works because open BSD 6.0 detected the disks and installed fine.
Thanks in advance. Oh and I am under pressure to go live urgently.. always the way!
