I tried to install RH6.1 unsuccessfully :
The loading process didn't detect any SCSI host
>> scsi: 0 hosts

The install process seems to complete, but the boot process invariably
>> "Unable to mount root fs on 08:01"
We think the kernel installed by linux lacks Adaptec SCSI drivers.
We unsuccessfully tried all options of the aic7xxx driver.

would copy onto the scsi drive before executing 'lilo' on it.
Can someone help us ?
