Installation of Redhat ES 4 - No hard drives have been found


Trying to install Redhat ES 4 on a Dell PowerEdge SC1430 with 2xSATA drives.
On installation getting the error
"No hard drives have been found. You probably need to manually choose device drivers for the installation to succeed. Would you like to select drivers now?"

- No matter what I do - I cannot get this to install.
Can anyone offer me any suggestions....

Many thanks

What's Redhat 10? Do you mean Fedora 10 beta?

Your title says Redhat 10. There is no such thing.

You make no sense.

Maybe you need to initialize your RAID first.

Mate you're an idiot - you ask questions about RH10 then try to make it sound like you make perfect sense.

I don't hide the fact that I know nothing about Redhat, but calling me an idiot is a bit harsh.

This is a newbie forum after all.

Writing about about Redhat10, then claiming to be taliking about about RHEL4 has nothing to do with being a linux newbie, it's about not being able to explain yourself. To compound the issue, you've tried to cover up your mistakes, and your initial response

was to throw it back on me.

No - you're an idiot!

I corrected my post, hardly covering up my mistake. I admitted the mistake. Get over it. There was no throw back to you personally, this is a public forum. If you don't want to help me, then don't!

well enough of the bitching, bottom line is you need to read the error msg presented and follow directions of the installer.

so get the RHE4 drivers for your HDD controller or SDD controller or RAID controller and move forward from there.
