FAQ
Hi there,
I'm currently trying to install a server with
Centos 4.3 x86_64. I have issues installing drivers from a Driver disk,
I got a driver(2810SA) from the Adaptec site,
I started it up with "linux dd"
It reads the disk fine ....
I can see the aacraid module in the list but as soon as I choose it.
Then I get a screen saying "Do you wish to load more Driver Disks?"
I can see in the logging that it can't find the driver it also gives a
"Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev fd0".

I have dd'ed the image ... it is a ext2 Filesystem and used RAWRITE.
Is there more that I can try ?

Any Suggestions ?
Thanks
Karl

    Tried it with RHEL3 and it works like a Charm.
    Centos will be first prize,

    I have a 2820SA and CentOS 4 just installed. No driver disk needed. Now if the
    adaptec driver performs better, I may look into it, but it just seems to
    scream now. It is not a SAS array, but it performs well enough for a storage
    server.
