Hey all,

I am trying to find a good tutorial on how to install a Linux Server OS onto a 4 x 250gig RAID0+1 PCI card. The PCI card is a TX2000 from Promise.

Somehow I don't think that I can F6 this one, with the drivers sitting on a floppy.




Woah.. I'm still here?

Grab the drivers for your linux distro and take a look at the readme.txt file in the zip.

2.2 To install the FastTrak Series Linux Driver into a NEW SYSTEM

  1.) Start the Red Hat Linux Installation with CD-ROM booting.

  2.) At the "Welcome to Red Hat Linux ..." installation screen, a prompt
      labeled "boot:" will appear at the bottom of the screen.

  3.) Please append parameters (see Note 1 below) at the "boot:" prompt,
      then press the Enter key.

  4.) At the "Devices" dialog box, insert the FastTrak Driver Disk in the
      floppy drive and then select "OK" or "Yes" to continue install.

  5.) Enable "Configure advanced boot loader options" box at Boot Loader
      Configuration menu, and type kernel parameters (see NOTE 2 below)
      in the General kernel parameters field.

  6.) Continue with the installation as normal.

  7.) If the installer occur warning message about "The kernel was unable
      to re-read the partition table on /dev/sd(x), (Device or resource
      busy)...", Please do not click skip, just click Ignore bottom to
      continue the install.

  8.) Press Ctrl-Alt-F2 when installation at the "Congratulations" menu.

  9.) Insert the FastTrak Driver Disk floppy, Issue commands to load FastTrak
		# umount /tmp/fd0	(For safety issue, Just in case)

		# chroot /mnt/sysimage
                # mount /dev/fd0 /mnt	
	(If USB Floppy, Please choose USB floppy device such as /dev/sdb)
                # cd /mnt
                # sh setup-ft
  10.) Choose your selection here, after FastTrak driver setup successful.

Yahoo, Thanks a million, for the help, Fitz.

I wonder which one would be for Debian.

I am going to presume it would be for RedHat that I am looking for.
