Fedora Core 1 and Promise 376 (RAID Controller)

Has anyone been able to create a driver disk for the new Fedora Core to get it installed onto drives in RAID 0 config on a Promise 376 controller?

I have the drivers for both RH 8 & RH 9 but I don't know how to change the driver disk to fake it for an install on Fedora Core.

Anyone got any ideas?

I have had the same problem with the 276 controller.

I have found the partial open source drivers at the promise website, but don't know how to make them into a driver disk for Fedora.

I was able to compile a .0 driver file from the source code provided by Promise but don't really know where to begin with creating a floppy for installation on a RAID array. The 8.0/9.0 driver shows numerous files but I have no clue how to get those same files put on the floppy. Promise does include a readme in the instructions to compile the driver so you should read and follow those instructions and you should have your ft3xx.0 driver file.
