Re: Adding SATA driver to kernel during OS installation

I need to add a SATA controller driver to the kernel of Fedora Core 3 during the
installation of the OS onto a hard drive. I have the driver compiled on a floppy
disk via the rawritewin utility. How would I go about including the driver into
the kernel during the initial installation? Thanks.

Boot the installer using "linux dd". It will prompt you to insert a driver disk at the appropriate point.


An example of the Fedora Core (>2) driver disk format can be found in a posting I made last year:
http://listman.redhat.com/archives/anaconda-devel-list/2004-August/msg00051.html


Whilst driver disks don't work in FC2 (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=122952), they're OK in FC3 and FC4 (I know because I've made and used them).
