I think I read in the Fedora bug reports that the installation CD
lacks the SmartAray controller driver and that's what's breaking it.
Do a search see if you can find it.

I am having much difficulty installing FC2 on a Compaq Proliant DL360 G2.
First of all I tried using the GUI install this just froze before
completing installing the RPMs, I tried doing on install using text,
and the install stopped at about the same place - however, this time
the screen was covered in a load of characters!
After I tried all combinations of using ide=nodma and noacpi, and when
using both together, the install managed to get through to the
post-RPM bit where configuration is done - I then just had an egg
timer for a long long time.... so it seems to have hung later in the
I'm not really sure what to try next!
Does anyone have any suggestions?
