Thanks, that is my problem but it looks like it's a little deeper than that.
The Dell PE2500 I'm using has a SCSI card that uses the aacraid moduel that
is not in the ctx files. I have changed to redhat 7.3 so that I have a
2.4.18 kernel and would like to use the kernel patch but so far have been
unable to figure out how to patch the kernel. On another note, after
looking throug some past post I have seen alot about ext3 file system,
should I be using it? If not then what?
