by the way, perhaps you intended to try SUSE Linux Enterprise
software (which IS certified on that machine), if so you are at the
wrong forum and have installed the wrong software, suggest you hop to www.suse.com and fetch the correct operating system, and then to http://forums.suse.com/ if you have problems with the certified
software for that machine…
To answer your questions:
I am not getting as far as the OS, so cannot use any of your commands. What I think is the problem is that either the automatic configuration gets it wrong with regard to booting or that I need to change something in my Bios or Disk Array configuration. I have only one disk array with two disks and using Raid 1. The boot sequence is CD/DVD followed by Hard Drive.
I have only got a trial version of Red Hat and the configuration setup was not as easy for me to use as Suse was. There were less GUI based administration tools (or ones that I could find anyway) and I wanted it to be as simple as possible to maintain. Also, I wanted to use an open source product if one would work.
and, then once the install media was created did you self test that
media to make sure it was error free, by selecting “Check
Installation Media” as shown here: http://tinyurl.com/3qde66h
if the machine won’t boot the Live CD i’d expect some kind of
hardware incompatibility or problem…and, then i’d next point you
again to the enterprise class software…as well as their help in
sorting out the problem.
