Slackware 13 Boot DVD doesn't recognize Adaptec 2005S RAID5 array
 
I'm attempting to upgrade a server from Slackware 10.2 to Slackware 13.0. When I boot with the Slackware 13.0 Install DVD, fdisk will not recognize the RAID5 array; it complains about being unable to seek on /dev/sda.

The system is a SuperMicro motherboard with onboard SCSI and an Adaptec 2005S Zero-Channel-RAID card; it works fine in Slackware 10.2 using the dpt_i20 driver.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Andrew

Update: I can access the RAID array using the i2o_block driver, but the setup program doesn't see the Linux partition on /dev/i2o/hda2. I have been able to mkswap /dev/i2o/hda5 & swapon /dev/i2o/hda5 without any errors, so swap shouldn't be an issue.

How can I get the setup program to allow installation on an i2o_block device?

Thanks,

Andrew
