Note If you have other SCSI adapters installed, you must make sure the RR231x/230x controllerBIOS will be loaded firstly. If not, try to move it to another PCI slot. Otherwise you maybe unable to boot up your system. Step 2 Check System BIOS Settings In your system BIOS SETUP menu, change Boot Sequence in such a way that the systemwill first boot from floppy or CDROM, and then from SCSI. Refer to your BIOS manual tosee how to set boot sequence.If your BIOS settings do not support such a boot sequence, you can first set it to boot fromfloppy or CDROM. After you finish installation, set SCSI as the first boot device to bootup the system. Step 3 Prepare the Driver Diskette Driver is provided in floppy diskette image file format.On a DOS or Windows system, you can make the Red Hat driver diskette using rawrite.exe.It can be found on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux CD (under /dosutils). Just run it under acommand window and follow its prompt.On a Linux system, you can use the “dd” command to make the boot diskette. Insert afloppy disk into the floppy drive and type the command (amd64 driver for example): - 1 -  RocketRAID 231x/230x Red Hat Enterprise Linux Installation Guide # dd if=rh3dd-amd64.img of=/dev/fd0 Step 4 Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 1)   Start installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux by booting from the installation CD.2)   On Welcome to Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation screen, a prompted label boot: will appear at the bottom of the screen:For RedHat Enterprise Linux 3, type in expert text (without quotation mark);For RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 and later, type in “ linux dd ” (without quotationmark), then press Enter  3)   When prompted “ Do you have a driver disk? ”. Select “ Yes ”.4)   When prompted “ Insert your driver disk and press OK to continue ”, insert thedriver diskette in the floppy drive and then select OK .5)   The system will load RR231x/230x driver automatically. Continue the installation asnormal.6)   When asked “ where do you want to install the boot loader? ” in the “Boot LoaderConfiguration” dialog, you must select “ Master Boot Record (MBR) ” to make yoursystem be able to boot RR231x/230x controller.7)   Continue the installation as normal. You can refer to Red Hat Enterprise Linuxinstallation guide. Note 1.   The system device mapping order is the same as the order shown in RR231x/230xBIOS Setting Utility.2.   On some system the LILO boot loader may be installed incorrectly unless youspecify BIOS parameters in /etc/lilo.conf. During installation, when prompted“Would you like to create a boot disk for your system?”, switch to console 2 bypressing <Ctl>+<Alt>+F2. Then use the following command: # chroot /mnt/sysimage# vi /etc/lilo.conf Add two lines under the line ”boot=/dev/sda”:disk=/dev/sdabios=0x80# /sbin/liloPress <Ctl>+<Alt>+F1 to continue the installation. 3 Installing RR231x/230x driver on an ExistingSystem Note If you use a SCSI adapter to boot your system, you must make sure the RR231x/230xcontroller BIOS will be loaded after that adapter’s BIOS. If not, try to move it to another - 2 -
