Re: Debian install/2.4 Kernel/ATA-100 RAID
I origionally scoured every place I could think of to find a module that
supported RAID for the D*** thing, but couldn't find a thing. I then was
looking at the RH7 doc, and saw a thing about software raid in the GUI
install (I didn't see it in the text version however...?). I just went
ahead and created a striped array with the two drives in the HPT-370
bios, although I don't think I needed too, as in the installer it found
"invalid superblock, must be initialized" or something like that. I then
just went ahead with the install, and when I got to the disk druid I
just created a /boot on of disk, a smallish swap file on the other (1/2
gig of ram...), and a "raid" partition on each drive. Then there was a
button that lit up when I had two raid partitions that was something on
the lines of "create raid array". hit the sucka, and the rest should be
pretty normal. One thing to mention, if I were you, I'd try w/o telling
the hpt bios its a raid array, that might help being able to boot off
the disk. (I have to use a floppy...) About debian install, I haven't
tried yet, it seemed like it wasn't possible yet, so thats why I asked...
could yoou give me some additional information how you managed to install the
redhat 7.1 as well as debian including the hpt370 because my system freezes
Are there some peculiar settings in bios, kernel boot up etc .
thanks for your reply
C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes it harder, but
when you do, it blows away your whole leg.
