linux + EVA8100 and IBM power 550

Hello gentlemen

we are planning to install
redhat Enterprise linux 5.3 on IBM power 550 with EVA8100 storage.
strange strucure made live complix.
the problem is we need to install This linux on the EVA8100 not on localdisk
this complicated the process.
Full redanuncy took place with two fiber channel adapters. Emulex Corporation Zephyr-X LightPulse Fiber Channel Host Adapter

Simply i have ONE question

- how can i do this ???

i never used IBM machine before.
- how to use multipathing while installation.
- i can use this DM_Multipath after installation for the rest of presented LUNS?
- does EMULEX allow boot from san

please answer to these questions will make a big difference.

thanks

What is the XCS version used on the EVA8100?
Linux boot from SAN is possible and we have implemented it in our environment with emulex cards.

Use the command
linux mpath when u start the installation
which will take care of multipath at boot time
Then installtion is straight forward and not complex
We have IBM power machine running linux booting from Eva 8100 with xcs 6200 without any problems
