grub and lilo are confused by the RAID device and refuse to install.
After forcing grub to see the error of its ways, neither 2.4.26-1-386
nor 2.6.8-1-686-smp will boot; they are unable to find dev/console and
they panic.  I found it necessary to build a 2.6.8 kernel with the
Compaq RAID card and filesystems compiled in; after booting this, the
installation proceeded more or less as expected.
