Exclamation Intel SR1500ALR / S5000PAL motherboard - CentOS 5.3 installs, but doesn't start


I have the following problem. We purchased Intel SR1500ALR with S5000PAL mother board. It has an integrated raid. We are going to use CentOS 5.3 x64 on this platform. System installation was done using SATA DVDROM. System installed ok, on the installation stage linux detected RAID as something like "devicemapperxxxxxxxxxx" and automatically created LVM volumes there. But after system reboot, we have only a blank black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left corner. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del reboots the system.

Can someone advise me, what is the problem? Doesn't CentOS 5.3 have appropriate driver for this RAID?
