compaq Prosignia 500

You have two controllers?  If you have two controllers take one out for
installation.  I have a dual PII 350 that has two scsi controllers, the
installer can't handle it.  Interestingly enough RedHat isn't the only
company that has this problem - I had it with SuSE and a few others.  The
more complicated code / user friendly they make the installers, the less
powerful it becomes....
