I'm afraid that I don't have much insight to offer here.

You could try going to the alt-f2 console and then running lsmod to
determine whether or not the driver has loaded successfully. If it has it
should have a use count greater than 0. 

Others frequently recommend ensuring that the firmware on the RAID
controller is up to date. For the latest firmware try:

IN&OSL=EN&SvcTag=&SysID=PWE_FOS_XEO_2600&DeviceID=2608&Type=DRVR&ReleaseID=R
59710

You could also try working with the megaraid driver available at:

ategory=35&OS=LIN&OSL=EN&SvcTag=&SysID=PWE_FOS_XEO_2600&DeviceID=2608&Type=&
ReleaseID=R56203

Hope this helps.

I found a megaraid_2002 driver which was on a boot diskette and I merged
that into my kickstart.  I see it load during the kickstart, but I still
get "An error has occurred - no valid devices were found on which to
create new filesystems."

I have a PERC 4 controller in the 2600.  The last error in the alt-f4
window is:

md: raid5 personality registered as nr4
Journalled block device driver loaded
hda: packet command error: status 0x51 (Drive Ready SeekComplete Error)
hda: packet command error=0x54
ATAPI device hda
Error Illegal request -- Sense key 0x05
Invalid field in command packet -- (asc=0x24, ascq=0x00)
The failed Start/Stop Unit packet command was:
"1b 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00"
cdrom: open failed


Any clues?  A better driver?
