I have been trying to install CentOS 4.1 on a new server today. The
installation went fine but the system doesn't boot. It doesn't even
get to the Grub screen. The system has a 3ware 9500 series controller
and 12 250GB SATA disks which are configured for RAID5 with one hot
spare.  I searched on the web and noticed that this is a Grub (and
Lilo) limitation. Is there any way around it other than setting up a
smaller RAID device?
