    Default Problems installing an ide-controller

    Hi,

    I just installed rh 9.0 on my system on a scsi disk controlled by an
    adaptec on-board controller. While installing the Promise SX4000
    IDE-Controller wasn't found. I don't now you to install now my
    ide-controller. I downloaded a driver in form of a *.img file from
    promise. Unfortunetly the filesize is to big for a floppy, so a
    reinstallation with "linux dd" does not help and I don't know how to
    install the driver in a running system. Other possibility would be to
    load the driver while installation from a CD, but the installation
    finds the adaptec driver and I don't know how to load another driver.

    Any help is appreciated
    Thanks

    hi ,
    Even if the size of the .img is bigger ,try this on some other
    linux box
    dd if=<yourfilename>.img of=/dev/fd0

    then insert the diskette during installation ( I mean linux dd ) , It
    should be fine.

    On the RedHat ftp-Server I found a tool called rawrite.exe. With this
    tool I was able to create a driver disc out of the .img.

    Thanks for your help.
