Cannot install Linux Red Hat 4 in BL465C

Hello,
I am trying to install Red Hat 4 in a BL465C.
I mount a cd-rom drive from another server and after that create the array with Smartstart 7.90. After that i make boot with Red Hat cd1 and after some steps it apears the message: choose from where it will be installed the Linux. I choose cd-rom. Then a new message apears: choose where to install the Red Hat. the driver from the disk controller (smart array e200) is not loaded and i can't load it.
The installation will not continue if linux does not see controller.
Those anyone have some ideas?
Can anyone help me?

You need a driver disk to ccis controller, make iso image of it and mount with virtual media. during the install it will ask for the driver disk.

Are you using the original RHEL4 media? The OS matrix list RHEL4 Update 3 as minimum for this system. I know RHEL4 Update 5 loads without the need to use the driver disk as it contains a version of the cciss driver that works on an e200
