    Default RedHat 8 Driver Disks

    Kind of a newbie here, so please bear with me.

    Installing Redhat 8 on a new box, cause can't get the drivers to work
    with RedHat 9 (maybe another post).

    Hardware I'm working with:

    MSI Neo-FISR2 (875P chipset)
    Intel 2.60 Gig 800 FSB
    (2) Ultra PC3200 400Mhz 1 Gig Kits
    LSI MegaRAID SATA 150-6 Controller

    2 - Maxtor 80 Gig SATA Drives (RAID 1)
    6 - Maxtor 160 Gig SATA Drives (RAID 5)
    1 - Generic 52x CDRW

    No problems except that I have to load the drivers for both the
    FastTrak 378 controller (on board SATA controller) and the LSI SATA
    Controller.

    At boot up I type linux dd and it prompts me for the driver just
    dandy, installs the driver for the 1st controller just fine. But I
    also need to install the driver I have for the LSI card.

    Any way to install two drivers like this at boot up? If not, is there
    a way to use the second driver disk I have later on? And what is the
    procedure for this?

    Thanks for all your help!

    I assume you should be able to use the same in RH 9 too, NO?

    Ok. From the RH Manual,
    +-----------------------
    dd

    This argument causes the installation program to prompt you to use a
    driver diskette.

    driverdisk

    This command performs the same function as the dd command and also
    prompts you to use a driver diskette during the installation of Red
    Hat Linux.
    +-----------------------

    Maybe that should do what you want. Refer,

    Also, once the installer comes up, you can switch to other consoles
    Alt+Cont+F[1-6] and then mount the floppy that has the module,

    mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

    and then do a

    modprobe <driver.o>

    That's what module loading script does anyway. I am only guessing the
    above would work.
