I am a total Linux n00b.

I have a dual opteron 246 on a Tyan 2882 motherboard. Raid is Mylex Acceleraid600. with 4 SCSI drives configured for RAID 5

I set up the server and have burnt it in with Windows XP and it works fine.

I created a Linux partition and swap partition with partition magic to test out a FC2 64 installation.

Installation only proceeds up to the point of selecting a partition method (Druid or otherwise). When I make either seletion it stops because it can't recognize a harddrive to partition and reboots... What's up?

I have a mylex driver for Linux but I haven't been asked by the installation process for it yet? It is driver idac320 1.0.0

What do I do? can I create a FC2 installation CD 1 with the driver on it so it loads automatically? can I force the installation to look for the RAID card somehow?

How can I get the installation to recognize the RAID array to complete an installation?

Thanks for your help

when the cd boots type linux dd or linux driverdisk, this will make fedora ask for a driver disk
