Did you wait
My actual setup (waiting for the arrival of ServeRAID host adapter and disks...) is:
- Pentium III 600 Mhz
- 128 Mb RAM
- PCI version of Adaptec AHA2940UW
- 3 UW SCSI disks...
I didn't wait so long... I tried also Slackware 9.1 (no problems, with adaptec.s installkernel) and RH Advanced Server 2.1 (a little wait, say 10-20 seconds).
I will give FC1 another try, waiting longer...
After that, I will prepare a set of boot/install floppies with a stock kernel... trying to get rid of the aic7xxx broken module...
