Red Hat Linux 6.1 installation on Netserver E60

I am attempting to install Linux 6.1 on the E60 netserver. The server has a dual channel adaptec 7895 controller. During installation it hangs while trying to load the aic7*** driver. This OS is supported by HP according to their website, however they do not offer a driver to download for this server. I think I need a driver but have been unsuccessful finding one on the web thus far. Any pointers on where to look is appreciated. Thanks

Re: Red Hat Linux 6.1 installation on Netserver E60


RedHat 6.1 is no more supported by any company. Except if you have a reason to keep this distro, I would suggest you try a more recent distro with a more recent linux kernel.

RH 6.1 => Kernel 2.2.12
RH 6.2 => Kernel 2.2.14
RH 7.0 => Kernel 2.2.16
RH 7.1 => Kernel 2.4.2
RH 7.2 => Kernel 2.4.7
RH 7.3 => Kernel 2.4.18

Another idea : try to upgrade you BIOS and check you BIOS settings (disable memory hole, plug&play).

Good luck.
