Hi,
Am installing United Linux 1.0 on a Proliant ML370 G3. Because i need RAID 5, i want to use Smart Array 641 Controller. I've noticed the UnitedLinux does not detect the controller. I'm having now the Driver Diskette that i got the image from http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/19250.html .
Now, my problem is that i don't know how during the UnitedLinux installation, i can laod the dd....
Does anyone hav any documentation on this issue or hav any help about it????

Thanks to everyone in advance.

To use a Driver Update Diskette (DUD) with UL 1.0, just press the Alt key when the first menu comes up. Insert the diskette in the drive at this point. Change video mode/install settings, add boot options, etc, then press Enter. UL 1.0 will prompt read the diskette when it loads the kernel drivers.

The only bad thing is that you won't know for sure if the diskette is good until yast detects the disks available during installation.
