Installing with SuSE Linux Enterprise Server

To install the Adaptec RAID controller driver while installing SuSE Linux:
  1. Insert the first SuSE Installation CD.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. When the SuSE installation selection screen appears, choose the type of installation you want, press the F6 key, then select Yes to indicate that you have a driver disk. (If F6 is not shown on the screen, you may have an older version of SuSE; press the Alt key instead.)
  4. Insert the USB driver disk.
  5. Type this command on the 'Boot Options' line and press Enter:
    linux dd
  6. When prompted to "Please choose the Driver Update medium," highlight the USB partition, then select OK. If the "choose Driver Update medium" screen is displayed again, assume that the driver was accepted and select Back.
  7. Follow the prompts to continue the installation.
    Note: For SuSE Linux 11, switch to the console by typing CTRL+ALT+F2 when the installation is between 50%-90% complete, type this command:
    cp -a /update/install /mnt/tmp

    ...then press CTRL+ALT+F7 to return to the installation screen and complete the installation as usual.

  8. Complete the installation, following the on-screen instructions.
  9. Continue with Managing Your Storage Space.
