Subject: [K12OSN] Setting up new server

I have a new server and when I try to install Fedora c2 it tells me that
no hard drives are detected and fails the installation. I have 2 scsi 73gb
hard drives. The controller is an adaptec dual ultra 320 scsi controller.
I have set up the drives using RAID0 and RAID1 and still the same error.
Any ideas?

I had this happen to me this summer on an older dell with a raid controller.
I had to use the firmware, probably similar to the scsi bios utility, to set
up a logical drive before fc2 would find any drives. Of course, before that
I had to reseat the controller because it came out of the pci slot during
shipping. I would guess that there is one more step to your setup before the
os can recognize the drive.
