Bug#306786: Debian-Installer installation report: failed on Dell PowerEdge 2850 with Perc 4e/Di RAID with 2.6 kernel

Date: 2005-4-27
Method: CD install

Machine: Dell PowerEdge 2850 with Perc 4e/Di RAID controller
Processor: 1 Xeon
Memory: 2 GB

Installer doesn't detect hard drives. Other distros detect hard drives, so no physical fault.

Poking around the 'net suggests that the error is because the 2.6.8 kernel doesn't have the required drivers for the RAID controller card used in the Dell PE 2850 (Perc 4e/Di, which is some LSI card, which requires the megaraid_mbox, megaraid_mm drivers).
