SuSE Linux on PERC4/di

we tried to get the controller Perc4/di working with
the megaraid driver,
but after loading the driver the machine hangs.
If the module is loaded with insmod the driver will initialize for ever.
(Machine hangs!)

Native RedHat 7.3 can't be installed on the PowerEdge2600.
Only with the special delivered RPMS from Dell it will work.

We want to install a SuSE eMail Server 3.1 on the PowerEdge 2600.

Has anyone the same problem or solved this problem?

Thanks for any hint

| Hubert Mantel of SuSE to your rescue.  He built megaraid 1.18d for SLES7
| (including eMail Server III).
| It hasn't had extensive testing - feedback to the list please.
