Yeah, I got a DELL 410 WORKSTATION that has (2) 550MHz processors,
512MB RAM, (2) IBM ULTRASTOR 18GB Drives and a 9GB EIDE drive. The
SCSI on the motherboard is controlled by ADAPTEC AIC-7890 for the
fast wide stuff (I think they call it SCSI-3/LVD or whatever) and it
also has an ADAPTEC AIC-7880 for the other (2) SCSI cdrom drives, and
a tape drive. NT4 is installed and see the other disks fine.
Now I WANT REDHAT 6 Linux on this machine... When I try to install from
cdrom, RH hangs during "Setup SCSI - Scanning Adaptec 2740,2840, 2940 SCSI
Now what? I cannot build a new kernel unless I can at least install the
software. I have install RH6 on many other DELL machine in the past and
have never seen the installation just hang. Could it be a multi-processor
problem? Could it be a SCSI driver problem? How do I work around?
Please help, I am stumped.
