I'm trying to get this installed on a Dell
PowerEdge 4400, and am having some problems. I never
could get the XFS-1.0 release into this, so it's a
standard RH 7.1 system at the moment.

http://www.dell.com/us/en/esg/topics/esg_pedge_towermain_servers_1_pedge_4400.htm

The kernel-smp-2.4.5-SGI_XFS_1.0.1.i686.rpm doesn't 
include the aacraid patch, so I have to use the
kernel-smp-2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1.i686.rpm

I Install the kernel:

# rpm -ivh kernel-smp-2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1.i686.rpm

make the initrd image, and move it to /boot:

# mkinitrd initrd-2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1smp.img 2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1smp

Add an entry to /etc/lilo.conf:

image=/boot/vmlinux-2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1smp
       label=linux-xfs
       initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1smp.img
       read-only
       root=/dev/sda1

but when I run lilo I get the message:

# lilo
Added linux *
Fatal: Kernel doesn't support initial RAM disks


Will I have to build a new kernel from source to fix
this? BTW: what's the latest "recommended" version
in cvs?

Does anybody know why the aacraid module isn't in the 
linus-tree?
