Problem Installing Linux on Xseries 330 with HP Smart Array 6400


Hi, I recently bought an IBM xserver 330 on ebay and I want to put linux on it...at this point I dont really care too much which one. I have tried Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, and finally OpenSUSE (which I will probably stick with) with no success. I try to install linux, however for some reason, it does not see the raid 0 array that I have on my HP Smart Array 6400 (and I have tried the onboard SCSI controller and an IBM ServeRAID 4lx) and an error message tells me that there are no hard drives installed in the system. I know i need to use the "cciss" driver with this card, however when selecting it from a list of drivers, nothing happens...any help would be appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Solved!!! I have been trying for the last week to get this to work and it turned out all I had to do was set ACPI off...lol well that was an adventure (I really feel like a n00b). So I was thinking about sticking with SUSE for this server...I am using it as a Firewall/DHCP/Proxy/DNS server. I had a couple of progs lined up (Squid, the built in DHCP prog (forget what it's called), and dont have a firewall lined up yet). Are there any better programs out there that I might want to check out? Thanks in advance again!

Hi Chuck.

Most distributions of Linux will come with the iptables firewall and I believe this also applies to SUSE, DHCPD I believe also comes with SUSE, I am not certain about the Proxying and DNS part as I have never done neither.

Thanks! Is the iptables firewall pretty reliable? I would think if it came with openSUSE it should be fine, but are there more secure ones that are recommended, or is iptables pretty much the creme of the crop?

Iptable is stable and reliable, however it takes alot of time and research to really set-up iptables correctly. It's not the easiest tool to help, I know Fedora has a tool called setup that helps with the basic configuring of iptables and I believe SUSE is fedora based so that tool maybe present. In iptables you can configure ports/ip that are allowed or denied and even able to configure ammount of allowed connection attempts for certain types of traffic, however their might be better tools around for things like limiting ammount of possible ssh logins per minute/etc.

iptables on RHEL (so it'll be the same on Centos, probably Fedora also) http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...el5_ch-fw.html
