SubjectInstallation on RAID volume (Mylex controller)
I want to install on a RAID volume controlled by a Mylex 170.

Built an image of a 2.4.1 with DAC960/DAC1100 "compiled in" and copied
it over vmlinuz on a Red Hat 7 boot diskette (boot.img).

I entered this at the boot prompt

boot: linux root=/dev/rd/c0d0

DAC960 appears to detect correctly the volume
Kernel panic: I have no root and I want to scream
DAC960#0: Logical Drive 0 (/dev/rd/c0d0) Found
DAC960#0: Logical Drive 0 (/dev/rd/c0d0) Online

It seems the kernel wants a root before it becomes Online.

What now?
