I would presume that you could use the method that I employed last month
to build the kernel module for the older megaraid controllers to install
CentOS 4 on the system.

The outline is fairly simple.

Find a machine that is running the same kernel that the CentOS installer
is using. Install the kernel-devel (or in the case of CentOS 3, you
probably need the kernel-sources), make the module, put the module on a
floppy disk and insmod the module before trying to install.


provides the longer view with a link to the original concept but mind
you, these are for CentOS 4
