Hot diggity!
Once you get a bit more familiar with Linux and it's kernel you can reconfigure and use the raid card I'm sure.

Have a ton of fun man.

Hi

I to am a newbie and have a RH9 install problem....

The comp boots from the cd OK, I select which install i want ( either works), then it asks for language, keyboard, then source of the image files.

I select Local CDrom but then it gives me the msg "RedHat cd is not in device, select the device that RH9 cd is in"

im guessing its a bad download but if anyone else knows of a fix the please reply. TIA

Did you check the md5sums of the cds and did you you test the cds when the installer prompted you?

What were the results?

I'm having the same kind of problem with RH9. Total newbie, but anyway...

So heres the deal, I boot with the cd, and it comes up giving me the graphic v text choice, I've done each, and both times I've gotten messages that confused me...

Before a bunch of number codes fill the screen it says "Unable to handle kernal paging request at virtual address C0000000" and then the gibberish and then "<0>Kernal panic! Attempted to kill the idle task. In idle task- not syncing"

So basically what I need to know is what I should do......

First, give us as much specific information about your system and its components as you possibly can.

How is the drive currently formatted, and what operating systems (if any) are currently installed?

It's partitioned (kinda) 16 gigs plus some change for win2k and the rest free space. NTFS or FAT32 depending if the switch actually worked, I'm running win2k professional

That error could come from a few places, but it's hard to say exactly where. Here are a few things you might want to try:

1. Test your memory; you might have a dodgy stick of RAM. memtest86 is one utility you can use to do this.

2. Open your case and reseat all PCI cards, RAM sticks, hard drive connectors, etc.

3. On Redhat's support site, either the RH 9.0 User's Manual or Customization Guide has a list of boot options (in the appendix) that can use during the installation to bypass certain problems. Have a look at those.
