Re: DELL perc3/di users

   The install that I did was using RedHat so it is a bit different then
Debian but what I did was download the PERCRAID driver module from
Dell's download area and loaded it during install when asked if you have
any drivers on floppies.

  Once the module was loaded the rest of the install went as usual.

Compiling your own bootable kernel would be a much better solution since
the Dell driver is probably compiled against one of RedHat's
hyper-patched kernels.
