Help Needed on Installation of Etch on SATA Hard Disks
A pleasant day to everyone.
I have a new PC Server which I would like to be configured using Debian distro. It is an Intel Pentium 4 HTT, Extreme Edition, on an Intel D955XBK Motherboard with 3 SATA Hard Disks, which I wanted to have it on a Software Raid 5. Since, Debian Sarge 3.1 does not recognize SATA drives, I downloaded the Etch 3, with a kernel-2.6.16-2-686.
At installation, my 3 SATA drives can be recognized and can be configured on Raid 5, but when the last part of the installation comes, wherein the GRUB or LILO boot loader should be written on the MBR, it is here where my headache comes in, writing of the boot loader is unsuccessful.
I have been googling but couldn't find a "howto" for the said setup.
Is there someone out there who could possibly help me out on this or maybe give me some insights and suggestions?
I have been using Debian Sarge for almost a year now, and am very happy with it, specially with its security and maintenance, not to mention its stability. My 3 other servers are all running on Debian and I will also install it on my 2 other servers once, I'm done with this new one. (The 5 servers are all using IDE harddisks)
