Hi to all ng,
i'm trying ti install a sles 9 on a HP Proliant ML330 G3 with a IDE RAID
(megaraid is named) but there is a little problem, the sles 9 can't find any
psysical drive to install on. It discover and install modules for megaide
(and on productor's info sles is supported). I have a 40 GB on 1° ide 0
device and two 80 GB on 2° ide 0 and 1 device and i want to install a raid 0
on 40 GB with system and a raid 1 on 80 GB [double] with homes and archive.
I configured raid and inizialised array but sles didn't find any drive. The
third controller ide is only for CD atapi.
Anyone with this problem? I can give you a big bag of thanx for a
solution... :) 

thanx in advance
D!

It's not supported D! I just got off of the phone with HP support
concerning installing SLES 9 onto a Proliant DL320 G2 server which uses
the same IDE RAID controller. In my case, the system sees the
individul drives instead of seeing a single RAID 1 drive or no drives.
They tell me that SLES 8 works but only with specific kernel versions
(i.e. not the stock kernel from the installation CDs but only with an
upgraded kernel) and a driver downloadable from their site.

ok, I found on their site files and instruction to install a sles 9 but I
never tried.. You save me much time... I'm thinking to use a red hat 8.0 (i
need only samba on that machine) and some people told me that installation
with red hat 8.0 with hp drivers works...
may it help you...

My $.02 would be bag using RAID on DL320 with Linux. You can just use
the disks as standalone IDE. Configure them as 2 separate RAID 0 disks.
Create RAID 0 with just disk 1 then create RAID 0 disk with disk 2.
They will look like standard IDE disks hda and hdb.
