Re: Install redhat 3U5

Where did you get a driver disk for RHEL 3 for BL680c?

It is not available at the standard download page:

In fact, looks like RHEL 3 (any Update level) is not supported on BL680c.

Remember that RHEL 3 uses a 2.4.xx series Linux kernel, while RHEL 4 and above use 2.6.xx series kernel. The driver disk for RHEL 4 or 5 is *not* useful for RHEL 3.

If you're really stuck with using 3U5 and can't use a later version, have you considered running your 3U5 install inside a Virtual Machine and abstracting the hardware?
