P3 Xeons do exist, but they are completely different from P4 Xeons. Of course, they are not dual-core, nor do they support hyperthreading, so a P3 Xeon appears as just one CPU (which it is) to the OS. P3 Xeons are similar to "regular" P3s. AFAICR, the differences are a bigger L2 cache, official support for a quad-CPU configuration, and a different slot connector (thus requiring special motherboards). > >other times I got it to boot from the CD then it won't do anything from > >there no fdisk etc. > > What output do you get from cfdisk?

Obviously, fdisk would not work without the RAID controller driver - there are simply no hard drives visible to the Linux kernel. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments
