Subject: Installation troubles
I am trying to install FreeBSD (have tried 4.9, and the 5.1 ISO's)
Waiting 15 seconds for SCSI devices to settle
Intel NA440BX MB, 512MB ram, dual PIII 350 processors
Mylex Acceleraid 250(DAC960)
Latest bios/firmware downloaded and installed on both MB and Raid
ISO's downloaded last week as well.
I know the raid card works, I had netware installed on the machine
moving it to new hardware.
If there was an option to install unlisted drivers at the initial
screen, where I am suppose to remove drivers that do not apply, then
be able to continue on and get this installed. I selected FreeBSD
it seemed to be abit more up to date with releases of other software
would be running (Sendmail 8.12.10, etc)
Any suggestions where to begin troubleshooting the install? I did
the latest drivers for the card as well, but all the install
I've found assume there is already a working FreeBSD system, which I
(FWIW, Redhat 9 also is failing to install, it locks up loading its
driver -never even gets to any sort of config)
