RHEL install hdd in wrong order? how change


Good afternoon,
I have 2x sata hdd onto mobo and 1x PCIX #ware raid card.
during install RHEL shows raid as sda, and 2 hdd as sdb and sdc.
How can I make the raid as sdc and hdd as sda, sdb?
boot loader argument?
thanks

solution

well, I found instructions for manually loading modules.
Easiest way was to install with raid card pulled out then insert card and partition with fdisk and mkfs.

even better than removing raid card.
at cd install prompt:
linux noprobe
then manually install hdd driver BEFORE 3ware driver.
BAM hdd show as sda, sdb, and 3ware shows as sdc!!
This prevents having to load 3ware drivers after install and allows for partitioning and mount during install. much easier.
-Thanks jmral23 you ROCK!!!!!
heh
