I have a new HP DL 380 G4 Server.I need to install Red hat linux enterprise on it.But when installing,no HD was found.Maybe the install can't find the Array card driver! Does anyone meet this questions and anyone who know how to solve this?

Yes there is problem with driver for array ctl
you need lastest driver for array.
Use floppy disk and load new driver during install time

Problem is that install find and load your driver but it isn't work.
there is bug in driver.
It can not find RAID config and not work at all.
I install Fedora and it work well.
You need right drivers for RH AS I mean new :)

Re: Can't install Red Hat Linux on HP DL380 G4

I am sadly to say: It still can't work.I find my RHEL3.0's kernel is 2.4.21-4,and I try a new version RHEL's kernel is 2.4.21-20.But I discover all HP's webpage,the newest cciss driver version is cpq_cciss-2.4.50-30.rhel3.i386. It is only suply kernel 2.4.21-9 and 2.4.21-15.

so how I can do to insatll my RHEL3 successfully?
I have fellow the web page do the disk driver,but still can't find the Array card driver.
thanks your kindly reply.

You are not right :)
You have driver but it can not work :)
Try to find source and build new driver.

I have solve the question.There have three ways to slove this question

1.install Fedora(because it support more drivers)
2.install RHET3.0 update 3 after's version(update 3 can install)

3.or you can use install cd's kernel is 2.4.21-9 or 2.4.21-15 ,then use disk driver to update the Disk Array's driver.

Thanks all replys
