It did not see the hard disk,
presumably because it did not install the correct SCSI driver.
Or maybe there was a timeout problem - the SCSI driver
seems to take an inordinate time to start up.

The default kernel with FC-4 did not run on this machine either;
I had to install a kernel from a previous version.

Only compiled kernels have run on this machine since Redhat-8.1, IIRC.
But Knoppix runs fine, as does rtbt - both see the hard disk.

Nb I'm not complaining about this, simply answering your question.

Incidentally, Windows-2000 did not install on this machine either.
It was already too late by the time I was asked if I wanted
to use an supplementary driver disk.
I installed NT-4, and updated to Windows-2000.
But that is another story.
