I am unable to install mandrake 9.2. My pc boots from the cd-rom and goes through the various checks. when it gets to my raid controller it stops and then says lost interrupt and hangs....
I know the disks are good because i had it installed before the raid was introduced.

I have an ecs L7VTA m/b, 512 333mhz DDR ram, geforce 4 Ti4200 128mb video, AMD 1800+ cpu, adaptec 1200a raid card, 2x WD 80 gig h/d's, a maxtor 40 gig h/d, an 8m/b fujitsu h/d, samsung cd writer, generic dvd rom and a s/b live card, ethernet is a Via rhine on the motherboard.

I lokked at the adaptec site and they said the raid card wouldn't work with linux but the mandrake site says it does. is there any way to install linux ignoring the the raid array putting it on one of the other hard drives and booting from a floppy?

any help would be greatly appreciated
