Ive recently been trying to install RH9 onto an old PC with the highpoint HPT370 raid card. Ive loaded the driver during the install and I partition and install linux to sda. However it seems no matter where I install grub or lilo, they fail to boot. Upon system restart, the system stalls after checking the floppy and cd drives for boot media. If I have a redhat boot disk inserted, I can boot into RH just fine, however I can not boot off of the hard drive. Where should I be installing the boot loader?
Also, one more sort-of related question. How can I get / make a driver for the hpt370 card for use with fedora linux. Highpoint does not have a fedora driver on their site, and I cant install fedora with a redhat driver. It seems like the fedora install does have a generic HPT driver but it dosnt work at all. Id rather install fedora, but since there's no drivers for it, I have to use redhat 9 and hope that a fedora driver is released by Highpoint.
