Hardware Raids :(

Hi All,

I have been pulling my hair out a lot out this weekend on this but I have been learning a lot too. I am still trying to install SuSE 8.0 onto my HPT374. There must be a way to do it.

Anyway what I think I am finding out though my little experience is that the standard Raid Module may be overriding my module that I am loading. Can someone verify this for me by at least looking at what Yast is returning to me for my drive configuration:

---Create swap partition 1011.8 MB on /dev/sda1
---Create root partition 222.5 GB (/dev/sda2 with reiser)
---Booting from '1.SCSI,22.57 GB,/dev/sda,HPT Inc.-HPT374 RAID 0'

There has been one suggestion that I have found that I still have not had a chance to try yet:
1) at the prompt where you select the installation type (Installation, Installation ACPI, Manual Installation, ...) I had to add the kernel-parameters to stop probing my raid0 disks (hdf and hdh):

linux hdf=noprobe hdh=noprobe

2) after installation I had to add the same kernel-parameters to LILO (edit /etc/lilo.conf):

append='hdf=noprobe hdh=noprobe'

and start lilo
Thanks again for any light you folks can shed.
