This is from my DL360 G5 .. Do you have the proper driver support for the SAS Controller ?

Welcome to LQ. As you may know, the current release of Slack is v12.2, so as long as you are in the process of installing it you might consider upgrading to the latest (as of this past week) version

My Slackware version is too old so it cannot find the driver automatically. I will add the driver to my installation CD.
I will let yıu know.
Thanks everybody who helped.
