Dell 1950 Perc 5/i driver


Is there a way to burn an image to CD with the PERC 5/i driver?

I have RHEL 4.0 I'm trying to install it to a Dell 1950 with the PERC 5/i SAS RAID controller. The drivers on the disk don't work with the PERC 5/i. I try an install and get the message, no drives in system. There is a Dell installer but I don't like the way it forces me to partition the drives. I found a driver from Dell but its directions are to dd the .img file to a floppy. My 1950s don't have floppies.

Any suggestions welcome
Thank you

Wiped a 1950 this morning funnily enough, sadly it was with Win2K3

We just used a usb floppy drive to add the Perc drivers.

I wish I could do that but I'm in a secure area and they don't allow flash drives. I wonder if I can get a USB floppy that would be recognized on boot.
