The server had an old megaraid controller but I already replaced it with 
a newer card.  From the Megaraid Manager:

Adapter Type : MegaRAID SCSI 320-1

I had two servers that had the old controllers.  I swapped out both of 
them and I was able to install CentOS4 on one, but this mail server just 
won't boot the install disc.

My original question was about the "serverworks chipset".  Tom was 
asking someone else if they had it so I just wanted to know if there was 
a known issue with the chipset.
