What RAID Controller do you have in your server?  i.e. PERC2/SC,
PERC2/DC, etc...
If you have a PERC2/SC and you are NOT at Firmware v3.13, that is your
problem.  You have to be at fw 3.13 before any version of RH Linux can
be installed.  To download this firmware, go out to our ftp. and the filename for F/W v3.13 is:
p2sc313.exe.  If this is not the case, then I would recommend you go into
the BIOS of the Raid controller and do an "Initialize" and then attempt the
RH 8.0 Install.
Let us know if one or both recommendations fixed it.
Thank You,

I am having problems installing redhat 8.0 on my poweredge 2300.  I have
a 2300, 500 mhz plll, 128 meg of ram, scsi, raid 5... I put the install
disk in the cdrom, follow prompts, then the install hangs, says it can't
find any drives.  I know the drives are up and working cause I am trying
to blow windows away, which did see them fine.  What gives?
