fyi.

Hi,

Redhat refused to provide me with support because
apparently PERC 4/Di is not certified for ES 2.1, only 3.0.

DELL were a little more helpful.

Downloaded the driver from:

http://support.ap.dell.com/ap/en/filelib/download/index.asp?fileid=R74493&devid=2608&sid=PWE_FOS_XEO_2600&lang=EN&lib=0&os=LE21&searchtype=filter

Created floppy.

Typed: expert noprobe dd (during boot prompt)
Manually selected the megaraid_2002 driver.
And we had liftoff.

I'm a happy boy now.

Specs:
Redhat ES 2.1 UPDATE3.
PERC 4/Di on PE2600

Hopefully this will make it easier for anyone else in the
same situation.
