Slackware 12.2 + Dell PowerEdge R410 with controller PERC H700


Hi.
I got a working mail server running Slackware 12.2 with the Dazuko module compiled on it. Now, due to the inrease of the usage i need to move the system to a new machine.
A Dell PowerEdge R410 was bought to move the system on. It has a Raid controller PERC H700 where the SAS disks are attached, some raid 0 volumes were criated to make the disks available to Linux.

When booting with the Slackware 12.2 DVD none of the disks are found and the system hangs although if I boot with the Slackware 13.37 64Bit DVD all the disks are visible and Im able to intall the Slackware.

The trouble is, I cant run the version 13.37 because we use NOD32 for file server on this system and it relies on the old Dazuko module and do not work with the new DazukoFS module. I couldnt compile the legacy Dazuko module nor the redirFS module that is need by Dazuko with the kernel 13.37.

The 12.2 boot hangs at this point:

Do I need to set any parameter at the boot prompt of the Slackware 12.2 so as the disks can be recognized?

If its not possible to boot with the wanted version, anybody knows if the legacy Dazuko module can be compiled with the kerneL 2.6.37?

Any help will be very appreciated.

Regards,
Carlos
