Here are the details:
Server: PowerEdge 2650, with a PERC 3/Di RAID controller, Linux 7.2
Files (not sure how many) were deleted from the /dev directory. After
performing a reboot, received a message saying that the "console failed to
initialize". The server was locked up at that point.
What I'm trying to do:
Tried to perform a Linux Rescue, but the RAID controller is not being found.

Is there a way to get the Linux Rescue to ask for controller drivers/module
parameters when going into rescue mode?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
