Package: debian-boot
Version: 2.2.23 and 3.0.7

There appears to be no support for the Mylex DAC960 RAID host adapter in
either the 2.2.23 (woody) install set nor the 3.0.7 (testing) install

The woody install documentation says its in the compact floppy set but
it is not.

The kernel-config for the compact set for both woody and testing says
its compiled in yet I don't see any attempt of it trying to init durring

The kernel-config for the standard set (not the 'safe', 'udma*' or
'compact' sets) says that it's was modularized at compile time yet there
is no module for it after booting to those floppies.  This is before
I get a chance to load the drivers-* disk set.

I tried searching for and downloading a dac960.o module for the 2.2.19
kernel that testing boots from but the module fails to load.  Not sure
if it's even a module compiled for i386 ... I found it via
ftpsearch.ntnu.no and it came from some slackware dist.  Some of the
paths state alpha but I didn't d/l from one that had that path.

Shouldn't the Debian boot floppy archive have the modules that were
compiled with the kernel available for download?  This way we can load
the modules when the install prompts that there isn't any hard disks and
wants to load the module from floppy.  Is there someplace else we can
get the modules?  Am I supposed to be tackling this in another fassion?
 Thanks in advance.

- Ken

Well, we use that, so I guess this bug is closable!

Bug submitter, I would suggest your bug is probably caused by
incorrect kernel arguments.  Please check kernel boot output (use
'dmesg' or see tty4), read the driver documentation, the Linux boot
args HOWTO, etc.  

Thanks, sorry you were shuffled around.
