Installation of Redhat 7.2 on DL380G2

I'm having problems getting RH7.2 to work on a DL380G2 details are as follows :-

HW Config

Compaq DL380G2 - P3 1.113GHz - 512Mb RAM - SA5i (no disks) and SA532 (RAID 1+0
2 x 18Gb 10k Ultra 3 SCSI drives)

The installation goes fine - custom install fine - CCISS from anaconda picks up
the SA532 and recognises the mirrored drive no problem. Once install is
complete and machine is rebooted you get this:-

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) - I created the root partition as ext3 with disk druid so not sure about this?
Red Hat nas version 3.2.6 starting
Loading scsi_mod module
SCSI subsystem driver Revision 1.00
Loading sd_mod module
Loading cciss module
Compaq CCISS Driver (v 2.4.6) - This is later than the driver available for download from Compaqs web site.
blocks=35553120 block_size=512
heads=255, sectors=32, cylinders=4357

Partition check:
cciss/c1d0: p1 p2 p3

Loading jbd module
Journaled Block Device driver loaded
Loading ext3 module
Mounting /proc filesystem
Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 19 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd/) failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 248k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel.

I've started the system using linux rescue mode then chroot /mnt/sysimage and
then made another initrd.img and modified the grub.conf to use the new
initrd still to no avail - exactly the same problem. Has anyone had similar problems or know of a work around or fix?
Redhat are being about as helpful as Microsoft so I'm not getting anywhere fast with this.

It maybe caused by the mount points in fstab.
Or remove the 5i controller (be sure to disable the scsi interlock if you do)
