Steve what particular Compaq hardware are you trying to land on ? What Model ? What version of SuSE ? I may be able to help.

I have a couple of problems getting autoinstallation to work with a Compaq system
1) The SmartArray uses logical device naming rather than traditional
ie: rather than sd0a it would have /dev/ida/c0d0p1 (controller 0, disk 0, partition 0
Can the autoinstall disk partitioning section be configured to grok this type of disk addressing?
2) I'm not using dhcp because of the enviroment I'm working in so I kick things off with explicit linux rc options:
linux ip=10.1.1.1 netmask=255.255.255.0 insmod=e100 autoyast=nfs://10.1.1.2/depot/suse80.xml install=nfs://10.1.1.2/depot/suse80 instmod=nfs
In the case of the compaq server I also need to insert two more modules "cpqarray" and "ncr53c8xx". I've tried using multiple insmod= lines
insmod=e100 insmod=cpqarray insmod=ncr53c8xx
and also using comma seperated modules
but neither method seems to work. I've done fairly extensive searches on google and other places and can't seem to find decent documentation for linuxrc and how to do this. Does anyone have a clue?
