Way back when (RH6.2) I was trying to get an ATA RAID controller working during a fresh install. I had to use text mode and somewhere in there is a way to load other modules.

In short you'll need the modules and a much better asnwer than this one.

IBM makes Mylex, says they have a new solution. Don't know if this helps or not.

Re: Mylex DAC690 - probs installing

Yes! The drives of Mylex DAC960 in the RH7.3 installation disk is the same of the Dandelionīs page.
We have tried the following strategies:
1. "Automatic" installation: The installer load the Symbios drive, and hangs during loading dac960 drives;
2. "Expert" installation: When the installer asks for a driver disk, we put a diskette with dac960 drivers. But, occurs the same: Installation of the Symbios drive, and hang when load dac960 driver...

did you ever manage to get the Mylex DAC960 working for you with Linux?
I just bought a second hand Sequent server that has a Mylex DAC960 controller in it, and am experiencing similar results. I have tried installing Fedora Core 1 and Red hat 9, both fail in exactly the same way that you describe.
Has anyone managed to solve this?
Thanks in advance.
