Perc 2 scsi cards

Does Fedora 7 & 8 not support the Perc 2 SCSI controllers that you commonly find in a Dell poweredge1400 server?
I got this box cheap.. like for free.. but neither centos nor fedora will load on it.
do i need to go buy another scsi card?

Any one running these older server with Linux.... and have recommendations for the solution?

or is there a configuration I do to use it and I am just missing it someplace..

I use KDE!
Many workstions and few servers running on Fedora or Scientific Linux professionally.
Using LINUX to do some scientific 3D-stuff.

did not mean to double post. My browser came back with a error, so I pressed back, and submitted again.. next thing I know, it went through..

sorry for any one who sees this.. if a moderator could delete one of them, that would be great..

I think you may need to go here : http://support.dell.com/support/down...=us&l=en&s=gen
and see if there are any drivers available for your card.
I could be wrong, but I don't think the 2.6.2x kernel has support for that age of card.

Found this over at www.centos.org: http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/...&viewmode=flat

Search at this forum turned up this:

At this link, click the Red Hat Enterprise Linux tab.

A new SCSI controller card would be the easy way to go.
