My server is equipped with a megaraid controller that cannot be identified by most linux installer. I have to load it's driver before installation can proceed. I know how to do it with CentOS that simply type "linux dd" when prompt "boot:", and I will be able to load drivers from a usb flashdisk. But when it comes to Fedora 14, it seem there is no way for me to have any opportunity to load drivers before installation, so can't it find the harddisk :( Anyone here has some advises?


dd stands for driverdisk, in fact on fedora is driverdisk instead.

You can provide even a network resource:

driverdisk --source=ftp://path/to/dd.img
driverdisk --source=http://path/to/dd.img
driverdisk --source=nfs:host:/path/to/img

If I remember correctly you get the boot: prompt only if you use the DVD install for Fedora. The LiveCD doesn't give you the option.
