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

Could you provide us with the output of "(lspci ; lspci -n)|sort" from
another distribution?

OF course, if neither 2.6.8 nor 2.4.27 have the required drivers, then
we're stucked as kernels are now frozen for D-I.
