I am new to Linux
and am trying to install Debian Linux (Sarge) on an HP LC2000r. This
server has a NetRAID controller 3Si. There are 3 hard disks and they are
configured as RAID 5. When I reach the point in the installation
where the hard disks are discovered the process fails saying "no
partitionable media were found". Do you have some instructions on how
to install this OS on the RAID level hard disks?
I have seen this
message before installing Windows and I believe that this means that the
appropriate RAID controller drivers are not available. In the Windows
environment I would install the drivers and proceed. I am not sure if it
is that easy in Linux. I also can not find the appropriate drivers and I
do not know how to interrupt the installation to install them. That is if
this is even the issue.
Since I am new to
Linux I would really appreciate it if the explanation is in its simplest
form. That does not mean that I am computer illiterate, just new to
Linux. Please don't assume that I will understand anything but the
simplest Linux commands. However, I follow direction extremely
Thank you for your
assistance in this matter.
