How to add third party device driver to Linux Installation CD?
Posted on 2006-04-19
I have a system with a RAID card (which I will boot from) that does not come with built in driver support from Redhat/CentOS Linux. So during the installation, I need to type 'linux dd' at the boot prompt, insert the driver CD and load the driver. I'd like to eliminate having to do this extra step of inserting a driver disk and instead have the Linux Install CD come with build in support for this RAID.
How can I add this third party driver to the install CD? What exact steps do I need to take to add it and reburn a new install CD?
This is urgent so any help would be appreciated, thanks!
The third party device driver install CD comes with the following files:
The RAID card manufacturer also provides the drivers as the following files:
