Installing OpenSuse10.3 on DellPE700 with PromiseFastrack S150 SX-4
I am trying to setup OpenSuse Linux 10.3 so I can do some experiments with it and later use it to host a small website.
I have 3 80 gig SATA harddrives connected to a promise fasttrack s150 sx4 raid controller. I created an array in the controller's setup.
When the system goes through startup it shows 2+1 RAID 5 array.
the linux cd then boots up i tell it installation, i hit escape to watch the text go by. At one point it appears to load the promise driver, and it just sits there for about 5 minutes. IT then goes into the gui setup and it later says no harddrives are found.
I also had a suselinux 10.0 disc (came with a book im using ) it detects the hard drive, but it doesnt seem to reognize that it is a raid 5 setup (it only wanted to format 73 gigs)(when there should be about twice that)
any ideas? I'd like to get this going and im stuck!
