Subject: [suse-autoinstall] Problems autoinstalling to a Compaq server

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= netmask= insmod=e100

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?
