Question Install PClinixOS on SCSI RAID?


OK, I am a COMPLETE NEWBIE! There, it's said.

I just got a copy of PClinixOS to try. I have an old Dell server with a SCSI RAID 5 array. When I boot PClinixOS from the CD, it seems to boot fine. The installation wizard offers me either a standard drive or a USB drive. If I select "standard", it says there's no room and quits.

Do I need to get some other version? Can I install this on my current configuration? Is there something I can download to help? Why am I asking questions all out of order? Why can't my fingers spell linUx? (I'm just an old dog trying to learn new tricks...)

I need some coffee.
Thank you in advance.
Jim

Welcome to LQ!

You probably need to pass some options to your kernel when booting so it knows to probe for SCSI. I've never tried this distro myself so I cannot go to specifics. I'm sure there is documentation on the installation disk and they certainly have it on their web site too.
