Question Redhat 9 + Highpoint Raid 372

Anyone know if you can install Redhat 9 ontop of a currently existing Highpoint Rair 372. currently don't have any spare hard drives to use for Redhat alone, so it would be great if I could just dual boot off this raid drive.

I have tried to do what you want to do and I am half way there.

When I first booted the install from the cd when I came to partioning it detected 2 120gb drives instead of 1 240 raid drive.

After some reading I found this website

where I downloaded the rh9_hpt37x.tgz

now I can boot of the boot floppy and type Linux dd and then enter the driver disk when prompted and the install detects the drive as one device on /dev/sda.

Now I have installed the whole thing, but when I boot I can an error about not being able to mount root from /dev/sda.

There was also a kmod error. And it was detecting the drives as hde1 and hdf1.

Now after lots of reading, I need to recompile the kernel without the driver that's detecting the hard drives as 2 drives instead of a raid, and have it use the driver on the driver disk!

How do I do this??, I can boot of the boot disk and type Linux dd rescue and access my installation just fine.
