Having problems with the above. OS loaded, rebooted etc., but when we
applied all the updates (including the kernel update), the server could
not find the drive:

Waiting for /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SAdaptec-ARRAYNAME-part3 to appear.
Part 3 is the third partition which is /

Followed adaptec's install information to load driver during boot, but
that didn't work (as it couldn't read the .rpm file(s). Just wondering
if anyone has run across this and is it a driver issue or a boot-option
at installation that I need to provide to fix this (as I've seen that on
a MegaRAID controller).

Also when building the machine a second time (after the first reboot
before you configure the root password etc.), I'm getting a forced disk
check message on /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SAdaptec-ARRAYNAME-part3 and that
is has been 49710 days w/o being checked, forcing check.
