To solve: - Prior to first reboot of D-I Installer (Just before Grub/Lilo section), I alt+F2 to get a new console, then chroot'd into /target - Then added megaraid2 to /etc/mkinitrd/modules - mount -tproc none /proc - cp /boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-I-386 /boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-I-386.ORIG - mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-I-386 (Makes new initrd image) - exit from chroot - alt+F1 to get back to installed screen - Run lilo step (Or Grub) - Reboot, and all is good. Thanks to Eric for his assistance.
Just one last note for the sake of documenting this problem for others who follow:The megaraid2 module is for 2.4 kernels. If you're doing this on 2.6 then follow Michael's steps but replace megaraid2 with megaraid_mm and megaraid_mbox.
