Re: how to install rpm file

That file is not for use during installation time. You need to find out a "driver disk image" for the storage controller to be used at installation time.

That package file is used in case you have the operating sytem already installed and to install a rpm file you use:

rpm -ivh filename.rpm
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
