The kernel from RHAS probably has drivers for similar controllers but is 
probably not new enough to recognize the 4/Di. And I believe it uses the 
megaraid driver and you need the newer 1.18[fg] or so.

Just bad luck. Red Hat can make a driver disk with this driver included. It 
should be possible. I don't have access to a RHAS media or kernel sources. 
But I think the issue is more of a not certified/not tested == not 
supported issue.

Correct me if I'm wrong.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
