Hi,
I need a kernel that has built-in support for my raid controller HPVSA (HP DL360 server Controller B120 )
1) I downloaded the driver  http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-linux/p358855755/v90170/hpvsa-1.2.8-140.sles11sp3.x86_64.dd.gz
2) I need to include on a sles11sp3 iso file
Thanks

Your anglais is just fine.

HP recommends you to flash latest server Intelligent Provisioning image and install any version of SLES using intelligent provisioning [F10]

Since that RAID is software RAID (Or if you dont like looking at SMH) - consider LVM mirroring options

* FYI there is no driver for your "RAID" funny-controller in Linux 3.13.7 and SuSE is known to not deceive their customers and not pretend that their software-raid controllers are something to install system on...

HI, gheist.
I forgot the most important.
You're right, but I installed HP Smart Array P222 Controller card. So I need to include this card driver in my sles11sp3 iso file.
How to do this?
Thanks.

Autoyast (network) or suse studio (€€€)

HP suggests you install from Smart Provisioning so you get drivers relevant to particular system

suse studio is +/- cloning solution, so you actually can use any other that does not kill EXT4
