Hello,

I am having installing RedHat 6.1 on a DELL machine that has the Adaptec

AIC-7899
controller.

RH complains of no drive found and no cd-rom.
The CDROM is on an AIC-7880 and the 2 drives are on AIC-7899.

Any help or pointers will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I think you have the wrong newsgroup.  Try linux.redhat.install.

Perhaps Try FreeBSD? ;)

He already got answered on uk.comp.os.linux.  Methinks the recipe for
FreeBSD would actually be rather harder - unless it's as simple as
"get an updated version".

1. Adaptec 7899 host adapter and Linux 2.4.4

Hi,
has anyone had any luck gettting an onboard Adaptec 7899 SCSI controller
to work with the new aic7xxx driver?

I have a Intel STL2 mobo  with sda1 being the / device.  when I boot
2.4.4 the kernel panick with VFS cannot mount root device.  The machine
works running Linux < 2.4.2.

Any suggestions,
Thanks in Advance
Dave
