Default Why can't I install FC4??

My question is very simple...Why can't I install FC4??

My System Config:
- Asus K8N-DL server board (supporting Silicon Graphic 3114 & nVidia RAID coltrollers)
- Dual-Opteron 246
- 2x512 MB Corsair ECC reg. RAM

Problem:
- Installation freezes at the "Loading SCSI driver. Loading sata_nv driver..." message.

I have the drivers I used for a successful XP installation copied on a floppy disk from the motherboard's accompanying CD...How can i get FC4 to use these & successfully complete installation?

Pls advise...thx in anticipation!

The driver may work for Windows, but it certainly might not work for Linux. Try finding a linux compatable scsi driver? Also, some of the OEM Driver CD might have linux drivers on them as well.

Great! I always make it a habit not to install linux on a computer with the latest devices . Much less headaches that way.
