SCSI drive in Fedora 4

Posted on 2006-06-22

OS: Fedora Core 4
SCSI card: Adaptec 29160
SCSI HD: IBM

I feel like a goof asking this but I can't find the darn HD! The BIOS sees the SCSI card and HD and I was able to format it from the SCSI BIOS. I just can't find it in the OS? What am I missing?

Also: The OS boots off a IDE drive. I can see the CD and floppy drives.

Thank You

have a look at /proc/scsi/scsi - you should see /dev/sda or something similar. Can you post its contents please?

Try: fdisk -l (this will list your available discs) then:
fdisk /dev/sda

Complete instructions are here: http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_43_3822.shtm

The OS can see a disc device, so now you'll need to create a partition on it and mount it to the OS. Do you need help with that?
