Sorry for my bad English
Problem with installation RH 7.2. on raid controller via ide vt6410

There is motherboard ASUS P4P800, there is built - in controller IDE RAID vt6410, has connected two IDE a disk, has created file Raid 1
Further download the driver from a site via, has made floppy
dd if =/other/backup_all/rh72dd-athlon.img of =/dev/fd0
Further at install RH 7.2. I do
linux dd
Further i give to it floppy with drivers, it swallows it and starts to see my raid
I break it into 3 units, the loader I write that have made in MBR, file system ext3
Then there is a procedure of formatting and install which passes without mistakes
reboot and problems also begin
At loading from raid such mistake is thrown out
request_module [block_major_8]:root fs not found
UFS: Cannot open root device "802" or 08:02
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:02

If boot from floppy boot disk which is created at a stage install that a picture varies

loading sd_mod module
loading viaraid module
/bin/insmod exited abnormaly
And then swears that could not mount root section

What to do?
Who install RH 7.2. on on raid controller via ide vt6410?
