mandrake+compaq proliant 6500

I'm installing the latest version of mandrake, 8.1 that i just downloaded off the net last night. When I try to install it, i'm getting the following error code:

"Please append a correct "root=" boot option
VFS: Cannot open root device 01:03"

I think it has to deal with the scsi controller? I have the smart array 4200.

I have successfully installed Redhat Linux 7.1 onto this machine, and i had to do the option of "Linux ide=nodma" in order for it to work, I have tried that here but there is no luck.
