RE: Adding SATA driver to kernel during OS installation



Hi there ---

Thanks for your reply. I did try that approach and while the initial
installation did appear to go by without incident. After I rebooted the system
upon completion of the installation, I was confronted with the 
following error message:

It would appear the drivers are loaded during the installation but are 
not retained thereafter. The

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).

Paul.
