SuSE installation problem: no automatic proposal possible
I am installing SeSE onto a brand new IBM xSeries server.
I have formated two SCSI drivers then used SeSE boot CD.
I could boot the machine and everything went well except
when I reached to the point that SeSE started checking up
system configuration. It could not find the hard drivers.
no automatic proposal possible
When I checked up the BIOS, hard drivers were also not visible.
Thanks a lot and have great holidays!

My system (very different from yours) has a BIOS chip on the SCSI controller card. During boot, first the motherboard BIOS boots, then the SCSI board boots and then the bootloader starts. The SCSI controller must identify itself to the system before Linux loads. Because I expect components to fail at some time, I have arranged my system to boot from an IDE drive, but the system is installed on the SCSI drives./IMHO
