RHEL load with SCSI drives - NO DRIVERS

I am trying to load RHEL3 update 3 from cd (iso copy) to a system with 3 seagate scsi hd's. I get the no harddrives found error do you want to add, to which i answer yes. It comes back listing the network card as found (3com) so I click on add. it list a large number of devices but most look like nics and network stuff. I created the drvblock disk from cd#1 and hit <f2> to go to the disk. It sits there for a while accessing the floppy and then goes back to the devices found screen. I then made a boot disk to make sure it was able to read from the floppy drive and that worked to get me started, just still no recognition of the hd's

What the heck am i missing.

the drives are
(2) 39173LW
(1) 318405

I don't know what the mb is, but it is a PIII cpu

Usually, recognition of hard-drives is the not the problem (well, from what I have experienced) but the problem is the SCSI controller. Looks like your SCSI controller can't be recognized by RHEL3.

Find out what scsi card you have and see if the manufacturer has a Linux driver available for RHEL 3. If you post the model and make of the adapter, then I might be able to help you find a driver.

I don't know about your scsi drives, but I am intrigued that you were
able to do install from a floppy--I was becoming convinced that it
was impossible. I've been trying to do a floppy-based network
install of Redhat 9 (RH9), and it keeps coming up with the "No driver
found -- Unable to find any devices of the type needed ..." Only
the log file (on VT3) doesn't show any problems with any network
devices. It does show a problem "module(s) cramfs vfat nfs loop not

So my suggestion would be check the log output and see what it might
say about the problem. And while you're there, I'd be interested in
whether there is any mention of cramfs, etc.
