Re: Compaq Smart2 Array
I'm having the same problem. Configuring the Array with the Compaq Smart
Array Disk is pretty easy. Booting with Debian Compact Kernel is easy too.
The Kernel includes the Smart Array Driver and is detecting both controller
and array (at least in my case).
My problem is how do I tell the Debian installer that /dev/ida/c0d0 is a
valid hard disk? I'm only getting the message 'No hard disk found'.
After installing Debian onto a local Scsi disk I don't have any problems to
access the array.
If you wrap the Internet around every person on the planet and spin the
planet, software flows in the network.

Have you already configured the array? I've only had to install NT on
Compaqs but before I even start installing the OS I have to configure
the array controller i.e. tell it which spindles should be used for each
of the logical drives, and what raid mode to use for each logical
The Smart Array configuration utility is on the Compaq SmartStart CD -
