Re: installing Red Hat 8.0 on a system with 2 processors and 3 SCSIhard drives...



I _think_ I know my hardware:

	no RAID controller
	Adaptec chip set
	the configuration is invoked at POST

The BIOS sees the three SCSI at id's 0, 4 and 6.  The Red Hat installer
does not see all the drives and I don't think it sees the two cpu's
either.

Does Red Hat 8.0 Professional support multiple cpu's and multiple SCSI
hard drives not configured in RAID?
