Thanks for the info. The installation problem I had seems to be related to an
installmethod.py file distributed by HighPoint with their RocketRaid
installation software. This program was originally written by RedHat but it is
rather old - from 2002. I managed to find a newer version from 2007 and with
this newer program the installation was successful. So I now have a Fedora 7
installed on a hardware RAID1 configuration. It is running fairly well so I see
no reason to change to a software version although it's nice to know that I have
this alternative if unknown problems should arise.
