Proliant 7000 and Mandrake 10

Does anyone know where I could find a fix for this:

Trying to install Mandrake 10.0 on a Proliant 7000 everything goes ok until the raid drivers come up. Then It won't see the CD anymore.. I know that I probably need another driver but has anyone else had this issue?
Thanks

Re: Proliant 7000 and Mandrake 10

Rob:

The real problem is that you have a 2.6 kernel. The drivers you have are likely written to the 2.4 kernel. HP has not released any driver sets to work with this. They have engineering support for commercial versions (RedHat, SUSE...) using the 2.4 kernel. We may not see any porting to 2.6 until the commercial vendors port first.
Enjoy!
