the first thing i would do is try different installation media.
disabling acpi might help. it's certainly worth a try(those
instructions from "help!!!..." are for disabling acpi. hopefully that
will get you booted to sysinstall. beyond that, hopefully the kernel
on the install media has support for your raid card or else you're
going to have the same problem you had with solaris and fedora. good
