Installing SLES10 onto SAS 6G 5/6 512mb Raid controller (D2616)

Hello all.
New at this and have the following issue with installing SLES 10 SP2 onto a RX600 S5 server.
1. I configured raid 5 on the controller (there are 6 drives).Selected boot option in the configuration.
2. Start installation of SLES 10 SP2 and when prompted, pointed to the driver which it sees plus the raid controller.( F5 option at start of installation)
3. Configured the areas on the Raid as per my requirements and then the machine does the first boot to continue the installation. This is when I receive the following message:
No bootable partition found.
4. How do I get the driver installed when I am unable to access a console? I am still new at this so any help would be great.

Hi all,
I have resolved the problem with the raid. Did a failsafe install which prompted for a floppy (none installed on server) just before the first boot. I had a flash drive on the system with the driver, it used this instead of the floppy. I just had to leave said flash in until SLES had finnished with the configuration of the hardware etc.
