I am trying to install the Cisco Clean Access software which built from a customized Fedora Core 4 kernel. The installation completes successfully, but after I reboot, I get a kernel panic error:

Loading sd_mod.ko module
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Cisco says that it is because the Dell SAS 5/i Integrated, No RAID Controller is not yet supported. The installer seems to load the driver because it creates the file system and copies the files to the drive, but I guess it isn't built into the kernel.

My question is, can I add the driver to make it boot? If I install with a "linux dd" and load a driver disk, will this just load the driver for the installation, or will it integrate it into the install? I am willing to try anything at this point.
